Toyota is accused of destroying evidence in rollover cases. We always suspected it, says a California personal injury attorney.
9/30/2009According to a new CBS news investigation, a former prominent attorney with Toyota has charged his past company, Toyota Motor Sales, USA Inc of withholding critical evidence involving pick-ups and SUV’s with poorly designed roofs. Dimitrios P. Biller alleges that his former employer illegally withheld evidence in several rollover lawsuits.

Biller claims that he was instructed to keep silent and even destroy documents needed in product liability lawsuits against Toyota. Additionally he claims that the engineering unit destroyed documents for over 300 roof-crash type rollover accident cases.
Since this important safety information is now known, several attorneys have filed to reopen at least 17 major cases and it could impact up to 300 more across the country. Several of these cases occurred in California, including Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Most California Auto Accident attorneys suspect this type of behavior goes on, but how to prove it is always difficult. It is nice to have one of them break rank because it is the right thing to do!
Do you know someone who has been severely injured in a Toyota rollover accident? The model that was mostly affected was the Toyota 4Runner SUV. Contact an experienced California personal injury attorney immediately for a free consultation. Allen, Flatt, Ballidis and Leslie have been serving the Orange County community since 1974.
