Recent publicity about accelerator defects has caused Toyota to recall several model years’ worth of its cars for repairs and modifications. If your accident may have been caused by a defective accelerator pedal in your own car or another vehicle, you need a law firm that is prepared to conduct a thorough investigation.
We will work with qualified experts to determine whether an auto defect caused your accident. If so, we will also investigate whether the manufacturer knew about the defect and delayed a recall, which could help you get punitive damages in addition to injury compensation.Contact an Auto Defect Attorney Today
