Toyota settlement in sudden-acceleration cases will top $1 billion
(MCT) — LOS ANGELES — Toyota Motor Corp., moving to put years of legal problems behind it, has agreed to pay more than $1 billion to settle dozens of lawsuits relating to sudden acceleration.
The proposed deal, filed Wednesday in federal court, would be among the largest ever paid out by an automaker. It applies to numerous suits claiming economic damages caused by safety defects in the automaker’s vehicles, but does not cover dozens of personal injury and wrongful-death suits that are still pending around the nation.
