Toyota settles with customers with $29M payment for auto factory defects

In an effort to settle a product liability lawsuit, Toyota Motors Corp. will be paying $29 million in damages to customers residing in 29 states and the American Samoa.

The lawsuit, filed in 2010, accused Toyota of delayed notification to customers about unintended acceleration—a detrimental aspect in driving—in some of its automobiles. Upon initial investigation, state attorneys had gathered enough evidence to conclude that Toyota’s headquarters in Japan and the U.S. weren’t communicating or exchanging information adeptly, leading to a delay in the news reaching the public.

Toyota’s customers in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin will be awarded damages from the settlement regarding the auto recall.

Fortunately, consumers who suffered injury or losses as a result of this vehicle recall have been awarded monetary compensation. Many other people in similar situations may also be in need of financial compensation if they have suffered due to a defective product.
