Wisconsin families sue GM for vehicular defects

Posted under Personal Injury

Three Wisconsin families are suing General Motors Co. for injuries and fatalities related to a 2006 accident.

In October of 2006 Megan Phillips, 19, Natasha Weigel, 18, and Amy Rademaker, 15, were in a serious car accident when the Chevy Cobalt that they were riding in malfunctioned and ran into a telephone pole and multiple trees. Weigel and Rademaker were killed in the accident and Phillips sustained serious brain damage.

The families are claiming that the, now recalled, defective Chevy Cobalt ignition switch was responsible for the fatal accident. Each family is suing GM for $50,000. This lawsuit marks the first wrongful death suit related to the GM recalls.
