Toyota Found Not Liable in 2009 Car Crash

Related Topics

A Washington State jury found that Toyota Motor Corp. was not liable for a 2009 car crash that resulted in injuries. The suit claimed that the plaintiff’s 2004 Lexus ES 330 was defective after its front section collapsed upon impact with another vehicle.

Bowman and Brooke Partner James Halbrooks, who represented Toyota in this case, argued that the consumer metric test done by the plaintiff “had a lateral component that the test lacked, and that the test did not exist at the time her vehicle was designed and manufacturer” (Law360).
