Our firm has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Tennessee against General Motors (GM) on behalf of the family of Tyson Sumners. Ms. Sumners was killed and Grayson June Dickey seriously injured in an automobile crash caused by the defective General Motors ignition switch defect. We represent both parties in the lawsuit. The crash was caused when the ignition switch failed, which led to the car shutting off during highway operation. This resulted in Ms. Sumners losing control of her vehicle and crashing. The vehicle burned on impact, killing Ms. Sumners and seriously injuring Grayson Dickey.
As we have consistently stated, General Motors knew it had a serious defect in its vehicles. The automaker hid both the defect and the fact that hundreds of innocent victims were being killed from both the public and the federal government. Now the automaker must be held accountable for its wrongdoing. GM took billions of taxpayer dollars, betrayed the American people and caused countless deaths and serious injuries. We will do our very best to let a Tennessee jury learn what GM knew, when they knew it, and then what GM did and failed to do. I am confident the jurors, once they hear the truth, will be outraged. Our mission in this case is to represent the two families to the best of our ability and to take care of them. We also want to send a strong message to the bosses at GM that the sort of conduct the juror will hear in this case won’t be tolerated.
Defendants named in the Tennessee lawsuit are General Motors LLC, Delphi Automotive Systems, LLC; Delphi Automotive PLC; Delphi Automotive LLC; and AutoFair Chevrolet. The lawsuit was filed in state court in Pulaski, Tenn., on May 8, 2014. Our firm, along with Lance Cooper of The Cooper Firm from Atlanta and Blair Durham from the Durham & Dread Firm in Nashville, Tenn., represent the Plaintiffs in this case.
