After its $1.6 billion dollar settlement with Toyota, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro has now filled a class-action lawsuit against General Motors in the federal court of the Central District of California. The firm is claiming all GM car owners deserve compensation for the economic loss and damages caused by GM’s tainted brand.
GM’s rocky history includes over 40 recalls covering more than 20 million vehicles worldwide during the first six months of 2014. This involves the recall for defective ignition switch system. The case accuses GM of misrepresentation, concealment and non-disclosure of “piecemeal” safety defects, all which has caused the devaluation of GM cars.
