Louisiana is among 29 states which - along with American Samoa - are getting $29 million from the automaker.
Amanda Larkins says that Louisiana's share is $1,457,058.
After the 2010 recall, state attorneys general filed a lawsuit accusing Toyota of failing to notify customers promptly about the problems.
The company says that, for one year, it will consider requests for reimbursement for such items as reasonable taxi fares, towing costs, rental car costs or other similar expenses incurred while their cars were being repaired after the recall.
It denies any wrongdoing or liability.
