As a products liability lawyer I often see people who refuse to believe Corporations always put safety over profits.
Since at least 2002 Toyota has known of a deadly defect, sudden unstoppable acceleration. After government investigations and at least 2000 complaints Toyota is beginning a massive recall.
It would have been much cheaper for the corporation to address the product defect sooner. Shouldn’t protecting the public be more important? The NYTimes has a good article.
