Need a bit more information:

 

- Mileage on the car? Did this just suddenly start, or has this been a persistent problem?

 

- How quickly are you moving from a stop - accelerating hard, or just smoothly accelerating?

 

- Notice any clunking or noise along with the steering wheel jerking?

 

- Happens only when moving from a complete stop? Have you noticed it when you slow down as well?

 

- How is the steering overall - still feels "tight", car has good straight line tracking, or does it wander all over the road?

 

 

 

If you are accelerating hard - not much you can do about that pulling, that is a function of torque steer on a FWD platform, like this Avalon. If you see jerkiness from almost any amount of acceleration, even happens when you idle away from a stop - possibly related to a steering issue or suspension issue. Unfortunately, without some further diagnosis - could be anything number of possible things - from worn wheel bearings, incorrectly alignment, bad power steering pump, damaged steering rack, worn tie-rod ends, worn suspension components (springs, struts, swaybar, bushings, bearing mounts), to even a slipping drive belt.
