Costello v. Toyota et al.
Jessica L. Bowen obtained a defense verdict on behalf of Toyota in Haverhill District Court in an action involving the alleged unintended acceleration of a 2008 Toyota Corolla. The Plaintiff claimed that as she attempted to turn around in a driveway, her vehicle malfunctioned and accelerated forward causing her to crash into a garage.
Toyota demonstrated that the inspection of the vehicle shortly after the incident did not support her allegation. Rather, a lengthy and thorough inspection revealed no defects with her vehicle.
