CASE UPDATES

Tacoma, Sequoia and Tundra
Rusted Frame Settlement

Blood Hurst & O’Reardon has 
reached a $3.4 billion settlement 
to have the frames of certain Toyota Tacoma, Sequoia and Tundra vehicles 
inspected for excessive rust corrosion. Corroded frames are dangerous 
and must be replaced, so we urge 
all class members to have their 
vehicles inspected. When excessive
rust corrosion is found, Toyota will 
replace the frame. The vehicles 
covered are 2005-2010 Tacomas, 
2007-2008 Tundras and 2005-2008 Sequoias. Inspections and frame replacements are at no charge to 
vehicle owners and lessees.

Insurance

The lawyers at Blood Hurst & O'Reardon have extensive experience litigating against life, auto and other insurance carriers on behalf of consumers. This includes actions against insurers selling term, whole life and universal life insurance policies for deceptive and unfair sales practices, overcharges and failing to provide the type of policy promised. They have also represented “burial” or “industrial” life insurance policy holders in race discrimination cases (with class periods dating back to the late 1800’s).

The Firm’s attorneys have represented consumers against automobile insurance companies who failed to pay their customers all the money due under their insurance policies, failed to pay for the diminished value of their cars after an accident, and for overcharging their customers.  Our lawyers are responsible for one of the few class-wide recoveries in the “imitation parts” automobile insurance actions, where auto insurance companies failed to pay their customers all they were required to pay.

Our Firm also represents health care providers against HMOs and other health insurers.
