Why was a GM Airbag Recall Lawsuit filed?
In early 2018, the General Motors Company (GM) issued a safety recall for nearly 1.6 million vehicles in the United States. The recall was due to potential airbag issues with certain model year 2019 Chevrolet Cruze and GMC Sonic vehicles. The affected vehicles had been manufactured from November 1, 2017, through March 31, 2018.
The lawsuit was filed by three plaintiffs who allege that GM knew about the airbag issue for over a year and did not take sufficient measures to address it. According to the suit, GM “knew or should have known” about an issue with the airbags “that could cause them to deploy without warning during a crash, resulting in serious injury or death.”
If you are injured as a result of a defective GM airbag, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
