Class Action Lawsuit Filed in Los Angeles

After 13 people died of carbon monoxide poisoning from keyless-ignition vehicles, lawyers filed a class action lawsuit against 11 auto-makers in August 2015.

Toyota Prius Class Action

The class action lawsuit included 1 person who died of carbon monoxide poisoning from a Toyota Prius Hybrid. The driver accidentally left the vehicles running inside a garage, causing toxic carbon monoxide gas to build up to dangerous levels in their home.

Major Auto-Makers Hit With Keyless Ignition Class Action

The class action lawsuit accuses Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Honda, GM, BMW, Volkswagen, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai and Kia of failing to warn about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

The auto-makers are also accused of failing to recall vehicles to install software that would turn off the engine when the car is left unattended.

“For years the Automakers have known about the deadly consequences that can result when a driver exits a vehicle with or without the keyless fob and without having depressed the Start/Stop button.”

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not filing a class action lawsuit against auto-makers. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for people who had carbon monoxide poisoning from leaving their keyless-ignition vehicles on.

About Class Actions

Class action lawsuits are useful when a lot of people are seeking refunds and reimbursements for defective products. However, they can have disadvantages for individuals with severe injuries, because individuals will have to share the payout with everyone in the lawsuit.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action Lawsuit

Instead of a class action, our law firm is focusing on filing individual lawsuits for people who were injured or died as a result of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning from keyless-ignition cars and trucks.

If you decide to file a lawsuit, our lawyers may be able to help you seek compensation through a jury verdict or a lawsuit settlement. You could receive money for your pain and suffering, medical bills, disability, lost wages, or the wrongful death of your family member.
