Reports of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Attorneys began investigating lawsuits involving keyless car ignitions after reports surfaced that drivers accidentally left their cars on in their garages and suffered carbon monoxide poisoning, which in some cases led to their deaths.
At no time during the sale or upon delivery, was it impressed upon my father that the keyless cars presented a carbon monoxide safety concern. At no time was my father offered an option for a ‘keyed’ car. There were no warning systems on the car to suggest the engine was still running. It seems incomprehensible that Toyota has failed to address this problem with additional warning devices for drivers, automatic shut-off after a set time, or at the very least, be required to employ a policy that suggests a key ignition would be more appropriate for senior drivers.”
Attorneys are looking into whether the design of keyless ignitions is too dangerous and too easily allows drivers—especially senior citizens—to easily leave their cars running without realizing it.
How Can a Class Action Lawsuit Help?
A class action lawsuit could help repay people for injuries they’ve suffered, including overpaying for a potentially dangerous car. It could also force car manufacturers to come up with a solution to fix the problem.
What If I Left My Car On But Wasn’t Injured?
Even if you didn’t get carbon monoxide poisoning after leaving your keyless ignition running, the attorneys we work with still want to hear from you. Anyone who purchased or leased a car with a keyless ignition may have overpaid for a vehicle that was more dangerous than they expected.
