GM sued by plaintiffs not covered in compensation fund

A personal injury lawyer from Texas filed a lawsuit against General Motors on behalf of 658 individuals, 29 of whom died and 629 of whom were badly injured, who were affected by GM’s recalled vehicles but not covered under the compensation program, Detroit Free Press reported on July 31.

The ignition switch defect was found in vehicles that included Chevrolet Cobalt, Saturn Ion, the 1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu, the 2000-2005 Chevrolet Impala, the 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrique, and the 2004-2006 Cadillac SRX.

GM has recently accepted responsibility for three fatalities and 14 injuries that were not formerly connected to the 10-million Cobalt Ion recall. These cases happened after 2009, the year when GM’s bankruptcy restructuring protected it from lawsuits; therefore, the cases can be tried.
