Personal injuries can occur in a variety of different ways. A Houston personal injury attorney sees many different types of cases each year, from work injuries to injuries caused by defective products, such as vehicles or medical devices. Toyota, a company that tries to maintain a good record of reliability and safety with their vehicles, has been through some trouble in the past few years, resulting in some personal injury cases being filed against them.
In addition to those injuries and to recalls of a large number of their vehicles, they are in talks for a multibillion-dollar settlement. The recalls stem from a dangerous problem with vehicles from 2009 and 2010, which would sometimes cause them to accelerate without warning and without driver input. This resulted in accidents and personal injuries. These injuries along with dropping car values have made Toyota the target of a number of lawsuits over the past year. Even the Securities and Exchange Commission is getting involved with the case.
The personal injury lawsuits, resulting from defects in the vehicles, help drivers and victims to receive compensation they need for their injuries. Those who have had issues with injuries due to defective products should contact a Houston personal injury attorney for legal advice.
Regardless of the type of injury you’ve received, you should make sure you get in touch with a Houston personal injury attorney to help you with your legal battle.
