Texas law firm seeking sustice in Chevrolet Cobalt deaths

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 28, 2014

Earlier today, we’ve told you that NHTSA is probing why GM waited 10 years to issue a recall over a faulty ignition switched linked to 13 deaths from crashes. GM might get a fine of up to $35 million if NHTSA will determine that the carmaker failed to pursue a recall when it knew that the cars were defective. But what about the victims that died in the crashes? 

Hillard Munoz Gonzales LLP, a Texas-based law fir is already representing the families of two teenaged girls that were killed when airbags failed to deploy during the crash of a Chevrolet Cobalt, which General Motors is now recalling.

Amy Rademaker, age 15 and Natasha Weigel, age 18, died on October 24, 2006 in St. Croix County, Wisconsin after their 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt left the road and crashed.

The investigation made after the accident revealed the fact that the airbags failed to activate and the ignition switch was in the accessory position, indicating power steering, power brakes and airbags could not have functioned properly. Now, the young victims pursue justice against General Motors. [source: CobaltRecallCase]
