According to NBC Los Angeles, plaintiff attorney Garo Mardirossian is pressing for $20 million as compensation for the wrongful death of a Southern California woman who was killed when her vehicle suddenly accelerated and spun out of control in 2009. Mardirossian went on to suggest that the installation of a brake override system in the 2006 Camry could have prevented the untimely death of 66-year-old Noriko Uno.
Toyota defense attorney Vincent Galvin expressed his deepest sympathies for the family and friends of Noriko Uno, but claimed that the vehicle could have been stopped if someone wanted to stop it.’ Despite the fact that Toyota Motor Corporation issued a recall for all 2007 Camrys to install the missing brake override system, Galvin assured jurors that the 2006 Camry was equipped with a top quality, state-of-the-art braking system.
According to the Associated Press, there are over 80 strikingly similar cases filed in state courts. This wrongful death lawsuit is considered a bellwether’ case, which will be used to predict the outcome of similar claims.
