- Congressional Hearings on Toyota Recall Begin
Toyota as both a brand and a company has come under fire in recent weeks given the enormous recalls initiated on several different models that the company manufactures. The main reason for the recall was a serious problem with the accelerator pedals sticking in an improper position while the vehicle was in operation. This sticking of the accelerator pedal led to sudden and sometimes uncontrollable acceleration.
Such a defect clearly creates an instantly dangerous situation for any unsuspecting driver. In response to this news, Toyota recall lawyersfrom all over the United States have been getting involved, and today marked the beginning of Congressional hearings in regards to the Toyota recall issue.
The Reason for the Toyota Recall Congressional Hearing
Congress tends to get involved with issues that are seen as critically important to the American public at large, and the recent series of Toyota recalls would certainly qualify as such. Overall, more than 8 million vehicles have been affected by this Toyota recall, and the models affected include:
- 2005-2010 Avalon
- 2007-2010 Camry
- 2009-2010 Corolla
- 2008-2010 Highlander
- 2009-2010 Matrix
- 2004-2009 Prius
- 2010 Prius
- 2009-2010 RAV4
- 2008-2010 Sequoia
- 2005-2010 Tacoma
- 2007-2010 Tundra
- 2009-2010 VENZA
All of these models were subject to the Toyota recall because of the sticking accelerator pedal problem except for the 2010 Prius recall. This recall was initiated because of serious problems with the braking systems on the 2010 Prius.
Initial Findings in the Toyota Recall Congressional Hearings
The first day of the hearings concerning the Toyota recall have already led to the revelation of important facts, including:
- Toyota officials stated that the company was growing too quickly to properly manage every model as a reason for the problems that were attached to the models affected by the Toyota recall.
- Congress uncovered statements in internal Toyota documents that praised Toyota for saving approximately $100 million by avoiding a more extensive and more costly Toyota recall.

My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
