Toyota Defends Position that Driver was at Fault in Unintended Acceleration Case

It has become common knowledge that the Toyota Motor Corp has got issues with failing brakes and or sudden acceleration. Recently a woman was killed in her Toyota Camry as her car somehow at the spur of a dangerous moment sped at 100mph into oncoming traffic.

Attorney Garo Mardirossian is representing the heirs of Noriko Uno who was killed in a Toyota Camry and is asking for a $20 million for her surviving family. Mr. Mardirossian says that Toyota Motor Corp is callous and that the company could have installed a safety device, but chose not too. He contends that the company “skimped by not installing a brake override system.” This system would deactivate the accelerator when the driver presses the brakes and is available overseas but not in the U.S. Mr. Mardirossian hopes to convince the judge and jury that Toyota isn’t the safest vehicle that it claims to be. He commented, “Toyota knew for many years that stuck pedals are a phenomenon with its vehicles.”

Mr. Galvin Jr., represents Toyota and said that the accident that killed Mrs. Uno, a 66 year old bookkeeper was her own fault. He claims that her foot was never stuck and she was never on the brake. Witnesses at the scene claim to have seen the brake lights on in the Camry, so of course, things will likely be hotly contested. This case will help determine hundreds of similar cases against Toyota. Currently Toyota has spent over $1 billion in lawsuits, according to the LA Times, involving allegations of “unintended acceleration.”
