Toyota settles Vance case prior to Jan. 21 hearing

Though the Opal Gay Vance sudden-acceleration case was supposed to go to trial on January 21, Toyota Motors Corp. opted to settle out of court. Vance filed a lawsuit against Toyota after injuring her neck and back when her 2010 Camry suddenly accelerated and she crashed into a trailer.

Toyota started settlement arrangements to resolve more than a hundred sudden-acceleration cases in federal and state court in California on Friday, December 13 and  recently settled a separate lawsuit in West Virginia to keep the case out of court. To date, the largest settlement case regarding sudden acceleration was a $1.6-billion class action lawsuit from motorists who alleged that the sudden-acceleration issue in their Toyota and Lexus vehicles significantly undervalued their vehicles.
