Plaintiffs counsel could seek as much as $7.35 billion from Toyota Motor Co. to compensate consumers for the diminished value of their vehicles in light of problems with sudden unintended acceleration, one of those lawyers said on Wednesday.

“I think we’re blazing a new trail,” said W. Daniel “Dee” Miles III, a partner at Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles in Montgomery, Ala. He said the Toyota cases come with unique circumstances compared to other consumer class actions.
