Beasley Allen’s attorney and founding shareholder Jere Beasley announced the firm has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against General Motors. The lawsuit was filed following the death of Aubrey Wallace Williams, a mother of two with a perfect driving record, due to GM’s delayed recall of her Chevy Cobalt. Ms. Williams’ vehicle, now under recall, had a faulty ignition switch that is believed to be the cause of a crash in which she was killed. Worst of all, GM was aware of the vehicles’ dangerous defect back in 2001, but chose not to act in favor of increasing profits over protecting the lives of its own customers. Data indicates that the delayed recall may have resulted in the deaths of 303 others. “It’s time to hold them accountable for what they’ve done,” Mr. Beasley said regarding GM’s misconduct.
