Quote Of The Day: I Break For Bar Exams
“Leading San Francisco product liability attorney, Mary Alexander states if you or a loved one has been injured or killed due to stuck accelerator pedals, break issues, or steering problems prompted by a defective Toyota vehicle, you may have a product liability claim that would entitle you to compensation for your injuries and damages.”
From a press release, dated March 16, but posted March 20, 2010, that broke the shocking news of “61-year-old James Sikes, who was fortunate to have escaped injury when his Prius suddenly accelerated on Interstate 8.” According to the release, ”Sikes allegedly managed to veer in and out of traffic to avoid numerous potential motor vehicle collisions (MVC), as his car sped down I-8 at approximately 90 miles per hour. All efforts made as a means of stopping the out-of-control vehicle seemed helpless as the brakes were defective.”
Would you trust a product liability attorney “with 25 years of experience litigating a broad spectrum of product liability and personal injury claims” who pens that press release several days after Congress and the NHTSA threw Sikes under the bus?
Would you hand your case to a lawyer that can’t even spell “brake?”
