He wife Anne Ezal, 72, did not survive.
When the accident occurred, police concluded that driver error caused the accident. Nevertheless, Ezal’s attorney is filing a lawsuit which blames Toyota’s acceleration problems for the accident and his wife’s death.
“An analysis of complaints recorded by America’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that Toyota Camrys made from 2002 to 2006 have generated more complaints of unintended acceleration than any other Toyota model,” said Donald Slavik, a lawyer handling Ezal’s wrongful death lawsuit, filed in a California court.
