Your Rights if you or a loved one has been injured by a defective automobile:
Automakers have a legal duty to produce cars that are safe, and promptly correct any known safety defects. Damages in personal injury lawsuits against auto manufacturers for selling defective vehicles with safety flaws include damages for:
- Past and future physical pain and suffering, mental anguish and physical impairment;
- Past and future medical, incidental and hospital expenses;
- Past and future loss of earnings and earning capacity; and
- Punitive damages in cases of egregious misconduct.
If the driver or occupant was killed, surviving families members may file a wrongful dealth lawsuit.
At least 13 people have died because of the failure of GM and government safety regulators. At least 1.4 million GM cars sold in the U.S. had an ignition defect that caused the car’s engine and electrical system to shut off, and disable the air bags. For over 10 years GM ignored this problem. Outrageously, the ignition defect could have been repaired at a cost of $2.00 per vehicle.
