What should I do if I'm hurt in an accident caused by a defective acceleration in my Toyota?

If your Toyota unexpectedly accelerates and you are unable to prevent the acceleration by removing your foot from the gas pedal and putting your foot on the brake pedal then you may be able to collect damages in a product liability lawsuit against Toyota for the injuries that you incurred. You may also have a claim against Toyota if you were not the driver, but rather a passenger in the Toyota, an occupant of another vehicle, a pedestrian, a bicyclist, or a motorcyclist involved in an accident with a defective Toyota. A product liability attorney can help you determine if you have a valid claim against Toyota for your injuries.
