McCuneWright, LLP, is scheduled this year to start trial against Toyota in October 2016 in a Toyota sudden unintended acceleration case. Azar Hadi was severely injured in an accident in her Lexus 350 that accelerated out of control causing a major collision with another vehicle. The case seeks to hold Toyota responsible for the accident, and recover the millions of dollars in damages suffered by Ms. Hadi. As reported by Toyota to the Court, this is the only case currently set for trial. McCuneWright believes that the trial is important to compensate its client, to hold Toyota responsible for its actions, and to highlight the tragedies that continue to happen because of sudden unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles.
McCuneWright has been leading the fight against Toyota for the sudden unintended acceleration defect since 2009, when it filed the first class action case against Toyota about this defect. Other cases were soon filed, and that litigation led to major recalls and the payment of billions of dollars in settlement and government fines. McCuneWright represented many of the personal injury and wrongful death victims of the accidents caused by the sudden unintended acceleration of their Toyota vehicles. McCuneWright was appointed by United States District Court Judge James V. Selna as one of the lead firms in In re: Toyota Motor Corp. Unintended Acceleration Marketing, Sales Practices, and Products Liability Litigation.
