Sudden Vehicle Acceleration Sends Woman’s Car Into A Tree And Light Pole

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) October 9, 2013 - The first wrongful death case relating to sudden acceleration issues in Toyota vehicles is on trial.

“Noriko Uno was driving a Toyota Camry in 2009, when suddenly it rapidly accelerated, causing her to lose control. She slammed into a tree and light pole and died at the scene. Uno’s trial is the first in a series that are poised to go to court, and this case will be closely scrutinized,” stated Daren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. The lawsuit seeks $20 million in damages.

Many remember the global recall of millions of Toyotas after a deadly rash of vehicles suddenly surging while being driveN, causing their drivers to lose control. Some sustained serious injuries in crashes. Others died, after being unable to stop their runaway vehicles. To date, Toyota has agreed to pay out $1 billion in other lawsuits relating to their defective cars.

At trial, the plaintiff’s attorney suggested Toyota was negligent for not installing an override safety system in Uno’s 2006 model. Her car was witnessed speeding at close to 100 mph as she attempted to stop it. Toyota suggested in response that an override system would not have averted the crash and that the collision with a tree was the result of the driver’s error, in that she never tried to use the hand brake. “Photo evidence indicates the hand brake was in the ‘on’ position,” added Monroe.

Litigation funding may be a good fit for this family, in terms of assisting them pay their regular bills and any medical or other costs, such as funeral and burial expenses. A lawsuit loan is an emergency cash advance for a qualified plaintiff that they may use in any manner they see fit. “However, most use the money to pay outstanding bills and stay current with other financial obligations,” Monroe said.

Pre-settlement funding is not a choice for everyone. However, there is no risk in contacting the ligitation funding company to find out how a lawsuit cash advance may help a plaintiff get through to trial and remain financially secure. Many plaintiffs find the fact that should they lose their case in court, the funding is theirs to keep, with no strings attached.
