In 2014, General Motors was found guilty of hiding an issue with their cars that caused them to abruptly slow down. The issue was a defective ignition switch design that could result in drivers losing control of the car and crashing.
The company has been ordered to pay $900 million in damages for this defect. However, GM is now arguing that the company should only have to pay $200 million due to the cost-savings they saw by switching over to their new technology and avoiding the class action lawsuit.

If you’re like most drivers, your car has a bunch of stuff bolted to it that you never use. But one thing that you might use all the time is your car’s airbags. And if you’ve been injured in a car accident because of the faulty airbags installed in millions of GM cars, you may be eligible to join a class action lawsuit.
What is the GM Airbag Class Action Lawsuit?
The GM Airbag Class Action Lawsuit is a lawsuit filed against General Motors, alleging that the company was aware of faulty airbags and failed to take appropriate safety measures to warn drivers about the dangers. The suit was filed in federal court on December 15, 2017, and as of early 2018, over 20,000 people had joined the suit.
