UPDATE: March 8th, 2012. Toyota recalled 700,000 cars today. In that Toyota recall includes 495,00 Tahoma trucks. Toyota is also recalling some models of the Camry. The automaker says that silicon grease is causing some electrical problems. Toyota says that some replacement parts will be needed. You should contact the company if you have any questions or concerns.
Back to the older story. Boy Toyota really messed up. Always admit your mistake, take it on the chin and live another day. The Law Office of Joseph McClelland is a car accident lawyer in Jackson and a car accident lawyer for McDonough. That is my advice for Toyota or any car company faced with a recall. People are being injured all over the county. Some of the people who have been injured are the drivers themselves. However, other drivers out there are also at danger of an injury. Many of those cars are probably zooming around Atlanta, Decatur and McDonough as we speak. If you know someone with one of the recalled vehicles, beg them to take them in before they run over the both of us.
Today, it is my understanding that several people have died from these faulty cars, although I have not heard of anyone being hurt in Atlanta or Georgia for that matter. If you have been in a car accident due to the negligence of another driver or because faulty equipment in your car, then you should contact an Atlanta personal injury lawyer to help you out.
When part of a car malfunctions, the case for the driver of the car is a product liability lawsuit because one would be alleging that the manufacturer of the car made some mistakes that resulted in your injury from driving the car.
