Car Manufacturer Negligence

car accidentIn 2009 a woman was killed in a car accident – she was driving a 2006 Camry. Noriko Uno’s car accelerated unexpectedly, heading the wrong way down a street. It is being determined if the auto accident occurred because Toyota was negligent by not including a particular safety device in the car or if it was caused because of poor driving. This case, a $20-million lawsuit against Toyota, is expected to set the direction for hundreds of similar lawsuits against the automaker in connection with similar situations. This case is similar to another in which Ford Motor Co. won – it was alleged the automaker was obligated to include a safety device that wasn’t sold with the vehicle. The jury rejected a claim that the Ford F-150 should have been equipped with an inflatable seat belt. Car accidents happen in Northeast Ohio every day.
