Plaintiffs lawyers allege that the automaker did not respond appropriately to complaints in hundreds of lawsuits filed against Toyota in state and federal court after the automaker began recalling millions of vehicles.

Toyota responded that it had identified two mechanical causes of unintended acceleration and had addressed the problem with "effective and durable solutions" in the recalls. "Toyota rejects claims that plaintiffs suffered economic damages because of the recent recalls," the company said.
"Importantly, to date, plaintiffs have not cited a specific cause that would support their claim of a defect in Toyota's electronic throttle control system," it said in a statement. "No credible scientific theory or proof has been advanced to support this allegation. Toyota firmly believes that the system is completely safe and that reliable scientific evidence will demonstrate the safety of our vehicles in the investigations currently underway and, ultimately, to the court."
Some plaintiffs allege that Toyota's electronic throttle control system is defective.

It will be interesting to see what happens with this. With no scientific explanation for SUA other than driver error, I wonder what kind of arguement the plaintiffs will try to make.

Those lawyers are going to be in a world of hurt when NHTSA releases the report they're holding that says Driver error is the cause.

Nah, the lawsuits will just be dismissed. Im thinking they are hoping Toyota will want to settle out of court, that way they will still get some money out of it.
The problem is though that even if they dont go to trial, it will still furthur damage Toyota's rep.
