As you have probably heard by now, Toyota has recalled many cars due to a faulty gas pedal. Along with this, they have halted production to ensure that no more defective cars make their way onto the roadways.
It is good that Toyota is taking the proper steps towards fixing this problem. But bad that there are people out there driving with defective vehicles that can cause great personal injury. As more and more people are involved in accidents regarding this recall, it is safe to say that the number of related personal injury claims will increase.
A recent story at JusticeNewsFlash.com details the current situation: Possible spinal cord injury caused by recalled 2010 Toyota Camry crash.
On January 30, 2010, a single car accident involving a recalled Toyota Camry led to four occupants being hospitalized. The men in the car reported that they were unaware of any problems with the vehicle.
According to a report by the driver’s wife, the car took off for no reason while her husband was pulling into a parking spot.
The 2010 Camry, along with seven other models, were recalled due to a defective gas pedal. Toyota is currently investigating, and owners are urged to take their car to the dealership for the proper repair.
