Can I sue if I'm hurt in an accident caused by a defect in my Toyota?

Yes, you can sue if your accident was caused by a defect in your Toyota. Your lawsuit would be filed under a product liability theory of law in state court. That means that you will need to prove that your Toyota had a defective design, a defect in manufacturing, or a defect in the warning given to you as a consumer about potential dangers and that you suffered an injury as a result of one of those defects.
