Yes, you can sue the auto company if you were injured in a Michigan car accident due to sudden acceleration of your vehicle. When sudden acceleration of a motor vehicle occurs, the driver has difficultly controlling the vehicle and can often not even stop. This can lead to high speed crashes and result in serious injury or even death. When serious injury or death results from sudden acceleration in a car or truck, it can give rise to a products liability lawsuit, and you do have the right to sue the auto company or manufacturer of the auto component.
Sudden acceleration accidents were reported previously with Toyota and Lexus vehicles, however they have been known to occur with other vehicle manufacturers as well.
