ZF-TRW Airbag Settlement with Toyota Defendant

Keller Rohrback is pleased to share the news that Judge Kronstadt in the District Court of the Central District of California has granted Final Approval of a settlement between the Toyota Defendants and consumer Plaintiffs in In Re: ZF-TRW Airbag Control Units Products Liability Litigation. This Toyota-specific settlement does not resolve claims against other automobile manufacturers.

The Toyota settlement pays $78.5 million in cash and credits (the “Settlement Amount”) in addition to an Extended New Parts Warranty, loaner vehicle program, and other benefits. It allows consumers with recalled Toyota vehicles to file for reimbursement covering the following expenses: (a) unreimbursed rental car and transportation expenses; (b) reasonable towing charges to a Toyota Dealer; (c) reasonable childcare expenses necessarily incurred during the time in which the Recall is being performed; (d) reasonable unreimbursed out-of-pocket costs associated with repairing ZF-TRW ACUs; and (e) reasonable lost wages resulting from lost time from work directly associated with the drop off and/or pickup of a Class Member’s Recalled Vehicle to/from a Toyota Dealer and/or repairing passive safety systems.
