Deadly acceleration case settled

Posted under Product Liability

After an Oklahoma jury found the Toyota Motor Corporation guilty of reckless disregard, the Japanese automaker was ordered to pay $3 million to settle a case that focused on a defective Camry. The unintended acceleration, and subsequent crash, of a Toyota Camry resulted in the injury of Jean Bookout and death of Barbara Schwarz.

The jury ordered Toyota Motor Corp. to pay $1.5 million to the family of Barbara Schwarz and another $1.5 million to Jean Bookout. Dissatisfied with the judicial outcome, Toyota expressed disagreement with the jury’s decision. A company spokeswoman mentioned that Toyota will continue to defend their vehicles.
