LOS ANGELES, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As a leading personal injury and auto accident lawyer in Los Angeles – one of the most high profile commuter cities in the world – you can be certain that Cameron Yadidi Brock is paying close attention to the ongoing General Motors recall drama. Much has been written about the recall but, then, it's a story that is still unfolding. In fact, the situation recently grew even more dire for the automaker, as yet another major personal injury lawsuit has been filed against the massive automaker.
The Detroit News reports that the most recent suit has been filed on behalf of 156 people who died or were injured in vehicles that were recalled this year for alleged defects – but who are unlikely to be eligible for GM's victim compensation fund. Standing in the way of compensation for victims is a claim from GM of bankruptcy protection, according to legal counsel filing the suit. The automaker claims that they are not liable for damages because the crashes occurred before their bankruptcy in 2009.
Meanwhile, some clients cited in the lawsuit were in vehicles that were tied to the 54 crashes and 13 deaths acknowledged by the automaker, yet still don't meet the criteria for compensation. For example, collision victims in cars whose air bags inflated in a crash are not currently eligible, while others were in different GM vehicles that have since been recalled for ignition switch issues.
A Need for Dedicated Personal Injury Attorneys
In a statement, the Texas personal injury attorney who filed the suit, Bob Hilliard, said that plaintiffs in the lawsuit are not eligible to apply for GM's compensation plan being run by independent compensation expert Kenneth Feinberg due to the "restrictive nature of the fund's vehicle qualifications." GM's behavior in this matter is a sobering reminder that even the most high profile companies in the world will try to avoid their financial and safety obligations to customer safety when not being prodded by the efforts of dedicated personal injury attorneys.
