The family of a Florida woman who died from carbon monoxide
poisoning that was allegedly caused by problem’s with her car’s keyless ignition
system has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Toyota.
According to court documents, the family of 29 year-old
Chasity Glisson claims that she died and her boyfriend, Timothy Maddock, was
nearly killed after her Lexus was left running in the garage. As a result of
the car failing to shut off, carbon monoxide gas filled the couple’s townhouse
The lawsuit contends the vehicle’s keyless ignition system
should require a safety feature that shuts it off. The system has been
attributed to a number of carbon monoxide deaths by people who were unaware the
vehicle was left running, the complaint states.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received
a number of complaints from users of Toyota Smart Keys, saying that they
accidentally left the engines running with the Smart Key in their pocket.

A jury in Bangor, Maine has awarded $6.7 million to a woman
whose husband died at Eastern Maine Medical Center after an ATV accident.
According to court documents, 49 year-old Paula Braley filed
a medical malpractice lawsuit against Eastern Maine Medical Center over the
2005 death of her husband, Thomas Braley Sr. The lawsuit alleged that doctors
at the hospital failed to follow up on a CT scan that indicated Thomas Braley
had internal bleeding.
Paula Braley claimed that the internal bleeding caused one
of Braley’s lungs to collapse, leading to a fatal heart attack. A Penobscot
County jury found in favor of the plaintiffs on Monday and returned a verdict
of more than $6.7 million.
Braley’s attorney said the award will likely be reduced
because damages for conscious suffering and loss of companionship have been
capped by the state Legislature.
