Our firm has filed a lawsuit for an Alabama woman whose husband was killed in a vehicular rollover accident while driving his 1993 Geo Tracker. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama Northern Division, and names as Defendants Suzuki Motor Corporation; American Suzuki Motor Corporation; General Motors; General Motors of Canada, Ltd.; Cami Automotive Inc.; Takata Inc.; Takata-Fischer Corporation; Takata Fabrication Corporation; and Key Safety Restraint Systems, Inc.
Charles Mims was driving the Geo Tracker down a county road in Chilton County, Alabama, on April 9, 2008, when the vehicle became unstable and rolled over. He was ejected from the vehicle and died from the injuries sustained in the accident. The Geo Tracker is defective and unreasonably dangerous in its design, manufacture, and sale, and also in the warnings that accompanied the vehicle. We will prove that the Geo Tracker is unstable and prone to roll over. In this incident the vehicle’s restraint system failed to restrain the occupant. The lawsuit sets out four counts contributing to the wrongful death of Mr. Mims, including negligence in the design, manufacturing, warnings, and inspection, and failure to recall the Geo Tracker when problems with the model became apparent after it entered the market. We will seek jury-determined compensatory and punitive damages on behalf of Mr. Mims’ family. Cole Portis from our firm and Rob Riley of the Birmingham firm of Riley & Jackson will handle this case for the family.
