Toyota Admits it Misled the Government and the Public about Unintended Acceleration

Can you trust anything Toyota says? As was widely reported, the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York reached a deferred prosecution agreement with Toyota Motor Corporation. The Japanese manufacturer admitted that it misled U.S. consumers by concealing and making deceptive statements about two safety issues affecting its vehicles, each of which caused a type of unintended acceleration.

Kristensen LLP represents numerous individuals and families with claims against Toyota for Unintended Acceleration. John Kristensen is a member of the plaintiff’s steering committee for the nearly one hundred cases venued in Los Angeles Superior Court. He was also responsible for an approximately $16,000,000.00 fine against Toyota for misleading the public and United States government regarding why Toyota recalled steering rods in pickups and 4runners in Japan, but not the United States.
