- Documents Reveal Toyota’s Knowledge of Issues
Generally, when massive recalls are initiated and products liability cases are filed, the defendants in the matters will claim that they had no prior knowledge of the defects in question. Sometimes, this is the truth. Unfortunately for Toyota and for millions of consumers, sometimes it is not. The existence of evidence of knowledge of dangerous defects and the dangers they caused can lead to proof that a defendant in this sort of situation had the intent to continue disseminating dangerous products.
Recent news has revealed that Toyota may have had this knowledge and perhaps intent regarding its defective vehicles, which will only add to the evidence that Toyota recall lawyers are compiling against the company.
The Specifics Regarding Defective Toyota Vehicle Awareness
As is regularly the case, a former employee of Toyota is in effect blowing the whistle on the company. A former in-house defense attorney with the enormous auto manufacturer has come forward with thousands of documents that appear to prove that the company was aware of problems with its product but chose to hide them instead of turning them over to plaintiffs in prior cases that were filed under the theory of products liability.
This is not only a potential ethics problem for attorneys who did not practice in good faith but could even lead to criminal problems for anyone who was involved with concealing these documents with the knowledge that more people could be injured or killed as a result.
What This Means for Toyota Recall Lawyers
While no two legal cases are ever exactly alike, this revelation if proven to be true could be the ‘smoking gun’ that Toyota recall lawyers need to prove that the Toyota vehicles that injured or killed consumers could easily have been removed from the market before they led to these disastrous results. In addition, proving intent in regards to releasing defective products onto the marketplace could lead to awards of punitive damages for plaintiffs who have been harmed by these vehicles.

I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
