First Lawsuit Regarding Mechanical Throttle in Toyota’s Sudden Unintended Acceleration Starts November 3, 2014

I should have mentioned in my last blog that the trial beginning November 3, 2014 before the Honorable Judge Ann Montgomery is the first lawsuit against Toyota for the mechanical throttle in the ’96 and ’95 Camry. Depending on the outcome of this two week trial, many more lawsuits could follow.

Like I said last week, when over 40 people come forward signing an affidavit claiming the exact same sudden unintended acceleration (accompanied by complete loss of brakes) happened in their ’96 or ’95 Camry, obviously something is wrong.

I used to find it surprising that many of these drivers brought their vehicles to a dealer or mechanic only to find no fault code had shown up in the computer indicating anything had gone wrong; but, now that I have learned there IS no fault code for SUA, it all makes sense. SUA is completely non traceable. However, that doesn’t mean something didn’t go wrong.

Looking forward to this trial and hoping for justice to prevail.

Lawsuit Against Toyota begins November 3, 2014 in Minneapolis Federal Courthouse

This trial is expected to last two weeks and will start on November 3, 2014 before the Honorable Judge Ann Montgomery at 9:00 a.m. Some of the parties that have filed suit against Toyota in this case include American Family Insurance, Trice and Adams family members (they lost their loved ones in the accident which took place in June of 2006), and others who were injured during the accident.

The accident involved a 1996 Toyota Camry that suddenly unintentionally accelerated as the driver was exiting the highway in St. Paul, MN. He tried stopping the vehicle more than once, but the brakes did not work. Dozens of other drivers came forward after the driver was imprisoned claiming the exact same thing happened to them in the same make and model vehicle. Some of those cars were manufactured at the same plant as the driver’s car, one on the same production line (assembled within minutes of each other). Sounds to me like something is wrong with the vehicle and it is not driver error. Just a hunch though.

Stay tuned.
