Looks like phone call is at an additional cost.
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Yes. The phone calls are $59 - significantly less expensive than spending even a few minutes in the office of an attorney.

My question is as following.I recently leased a 2017 toyota highlander, which comes with lots of safety features, including, automatic collision avoidance/braking. we were at a stop light in Merrimack, NH waiting for the traffic to move. The car infront of me just went ahead, so I started moving and suddenly the guy infront of me came to a sudden stop, I tried stopping, while I was trying to stop, my car's automatic feature kicked in, "BRAKE" message appeared in Dashboard, but the car still wouldnt stop, it took control off my brake and when i pressed the brake pedal it wouldnt stop. I ended up hitting the car infront of me. My first accident ever! I called toyota today to let them know about the incident and filed a case with them. What should be my next step?
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Your next step would be to contact your insurance company and let them know about the accident. You also would have wanted to file a police report for the accident and exchange insurance information with the car in front of you.

Ofcourse all of that is completed - My question is regarding how to handle this issue with Toyota, I heard from so many people that they are very hard to convince that this is their issue/fault.
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 7 months ago

You could hire an attorney to send them a letter but there's really no convincing a giant corporation without some evidence.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
