Defective floor mats have been blamed for many accidents recently. In fact, millions of vehicles have been recalled by Toyota, Lexus, Pontiac and other brands. Even with the recall, floor mats can be hazardous, especially when improperly installed.
If you were in a car accident caused by a hazardous floor mat, you may be entitled to compensation. For more information or to schedule your free consultation, call 1-800-ELK-OHIO or contact us online.
Investigating the truth and fighting for the compensation you deserve
Floor mats that do not fit the vehicle properly could cause the accelerator to stick. With the gas pedal stuck in the floor mat, the driver can no longer control the speed of the vehicle.
Known as pedal entrapment, the accelerator problems led to the floor mat recall. Yet there are still dangerous and unsafe floor mats in cars, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) still warns drivers about the dangers of some those floor mats.
Our lawyers have handled many cases involving floor mat defects and other motor vehicle accidents. In 2017, Phillip Kuri settled a floor mat case for $3.65 million, where the floor mat caused unintentional acceleration, causing severe and permanent injuries.
