New Jersey Products Liability Attorneys Help Victims of Accidents Caused by Unintended Acceleration


Driving a car is dangerous enough without having to worry about suddenly losing control of the vehicle. Sometimes, unintended acceleration is unavoidable and it’s not the driver’s fault. Car manufacturers have an obligation to ensure the safety of consumers. Do not allow a car manufacturer to cut corners when it comes to your safety and the safety of your loved ones.

If you or a loved one was injured due to sudden unintended acceleration, you are going to want to speak with an experienced products liability and personal injury lawyer.

What Are the Causes of Sudden Unintended Acceleration?

Auto defects are not as rare as you might think. The simple act of engaging the ignition and putting the car into drive or reverse can result in sudden unintended acceleration. Unintended acceleration, surging, and speed control problems can lead to dangerous collisions. When the gas pedal becomes stuck, the driver may lose control of the car. The car suddenly speeds up even though the driver is not stepping on the gas pedal. The direct causes of sudden unintended acceleration include:

Some examples of the potential injuries caused by the unintended acceleration of a motor vehicle include:

Every year, out-of control cars cause devastating injuries to motor vehicle occupants, other motorists, and pedestrians. This problem is particularly widespread among vehicles manufactured by Toyota. Independent safety expert Sean Kane, the president of Safety Research and Strategies, told the LA Times that he has identified nearly 2,000 sudden-acceleration cases for Toyota vehicles built since 2001. As a result of these incidents, Toyota has recalled more than eight million vehicles since 2009.
