The number of victims of motor vehicle defects before a safety recall is issued is hard to calculate. Everyday, Missouri men and women count on their vehicle to transport them safely to and from their destinations. However, when an air bag fails to deploy or a seat belt latch breaks, a minor collision can become a catastrophic event resulting in serious injury or death. Over the years, there has been an increase in Toyota Camry and Prius lawsuits due to defective motor vehicle operation. In one related event, a man recently got into an accident after his Toyota Camry supposedly accelerated voluntarily while his foot was on the brakes.
