- Toyota Is In the Spotlight Again
It has not been a positive year so far for Toyota. The company has been mired in controversy because of its massive recall of more than 8 million vehicles because of a problem with the accelerator pedals. The news of the recall was covered in the media relentlessly, and Toyota executives appeared before the United States Congress to explain the problems with the company that led to these recalls. Now comes word that reports are arising regarding deaths and serious injuries as a result of driving defective Toyota vehicles. Toyota recall lawyers are beginning to meet with consumers who have been harmed because of this Toyota recall, and the news could get worse for both Toyota and millions of consumers before it gets better.
The Dangers Caused by Defective Toyota Vehicles
The dangers caused by these defective Toyota vehicles can be as extreme as they are sudden. The accelerator pedals tend to stick close to the floor boards, and this leads to a sudden acceleration of the vehicle. This situation is particularly dangerous in several situations:
- When the defective Toyota is being driven in heavy traffic conditions
- When the defective Toyota is navigating through terrain that includes cliffs and bodies of water
- When the defective Toyota is being driven in tight spaces such as garages and parking spaces
Anyone who is either in the vehicle or nearby is instantly placed in a situation of danger, and these dangers clearly include the risk of serious injury and death.
The Options for Those Harmed by a Defective Toyota
When someone has been injured because of damage caused by a defective Toyota, his or her options are somewhat limited. Fortunately, those limited options include the possibility of pursuing a legal claim against the company. However, bringing a claim against an enormous international corporation can be difficult for someone without legal experience. If the case goes to court, the consumer would have to prove that the Toyota he or she was driving was defective and that this defect is what led, either directly or indirectly, to the injuries and damages caused.

Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
