Sudden Acceleration Attorney
Sudden unintended acceleration (SUA) is something that affects vehicles of all makes and models. By definition, SUA is an occurrence where the vehicle suddenly speeds out of control, due to no action of the driver whatsoever. In these types of instances, the driver is usually unable to stop the car by traditional means, such as applying the brakes or pulling the emergency brake. Due the spontaneity and suddenness of these accidents, they often result in serious injuries or fatalities. SUA crashes can injure the driver, other vehicle occupants, pedestrians, cyclists, other vehicles and drivers, and structures that are long the out-of-control vehicle’s pathway. Sudden acceleration is one of the most frightening things that can happen while we’re driving. The car’s electronics make the throttle open wide and it becomes impossible for the driver to slow the vehicle while it’s in gear. The brakes can’t function properly and suddenly you find yourself driving a runaway car. If this has happened to you or if you have been involved in a SUA accident in some other capacity, please contact Rad Law Firm.

Understanding SUA Cases
Sudden acceleration first came into the spotlight in 2009 when Toyota announced a massive recall of Toyota and Lexus model vehicles after a crash resulted in the death of a man driving a Lexus and his family. This recall was blamed on defective floor mats that trapped the gas pedal. In addition to Toyota and Lexus cars, Ford, Hyundai, and even Audi have all had problems with sudden acceleration. In some cases, this is due to defective gas pedals, cruise control failure, stuck throttles, and poorly designed carpet or floor mats. Regardless of the cause, these types of crashes can be devastating and life-changing for those affected.
