- Toyota Wants Claims Consolidated
When a company faces a litany of legal claims against it, it’s common for the defendant to look for ways to make their problem simpler. One of those common strategies is to ask the court to consolidate claims into one central action. This strategy clearly allows defense attorneys to work on one set of claims and to prepare for one large action instead of dozens or hundreds. This appears to be the step that Toyota wants to take as legal claims continue to arise all over the United States.
Regardless of what decision is made, anyone who has been harmed because of driving a defective Toyota should still take the step of contacting a Toyota recall lawyer.
The Numbers In Regards to Claims Against Toyota
As of this writing, the number of claims against Toyota is enormous, and all indications are that it will continue to grow. Attorneys for the troubled company stated that they could face as many as 138 class action lawsuits and at least another 97 individual claims for personal injury. The vast majority of these claims appear to be seeking compensation for damages suffered as a result of defective accelerator pedals that led to uncontrolled and unexpected acceleration when these pedals became stuck in an improper position.
Toyota attorneys want the case/cases to be tried in Los Angeles, where Toyota has its corporate headquarters in the United States. However, several plaintiffs’ attorneys have asked for the venue to be in such locations as Kentucky, where Toyota has a large manufacturing plant and Louisiana, New Jersey, Ohio, South Carolina, New York among other locations.
One potential problem with consolidating the cases, however, is that some of the claims are not that the accelerator pedals simply stuck near the floor, but that faulty electronic throttle controls were actually the problem. In addition, some are alleging that Toyota knew about this problem for more than a decade and covered it up for fear of exactly what’s happening presently.
If you or someone you love has been harmed by driving a defective Toyota, you need to take action while these cases are building. Contact a personal injury lawyer in Phoenix at Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
Sophia H is very helpful.
My paralegal , Caroline , was on top of her game - very responsive and always answered any questions I had and in a timely manner . My attorney Rob ,was the best attorney I ever had . He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
