An auto accident victim with serious injuries may be able to file against GM under the faulty ignition switch theory. Many cases were previously barred from filing suit until a recent Supreme Court decision changed a lower court ruling. The door is now open for potentially hundreds of previously barred ignition switch claims to be filed for personal injury claims arising before GM filed for bankruptcy in 2009.
We essentially look for airbag non deployment for these claims. Bodily Injury also needs to have occurred, not just property damage. If you were in a wreck and the airbags did not go off for certain makes and models of vehicles, the you could potentially have a claim against GM. Certain models of vehicles are involved. Check if your model is included here.
