The Recall Lawyers at Jones Ward PLC filed three new class action cases this week regarding the GM/Chevy recall regarding the ignition defects. These class actions, filed in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, are on behalf of residents of each of those states and potentially nationally who owned or leased any of the recalled Chevy models.
What Models Were Recalled
Beginning earlier this year, Chevy recalled these makes and model years because of defects:
* 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt
* 2005-2007 Pontiac G5
* 2003-2007 Saturn Ion
* 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR
* 2006-2007 Pontiac Solstice
* 2007 Saturn Sky
* 2008 – 2010 Pontiac Solstice
* 2008-2010 Saturn Sky
* 2008-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt
* 2008-2011 Chevrolet HHR
What Happens Next?
Because the Chevy recall will result in hundreds if not thousands of lawsuits, the attorneys working on these cases will likely join together in front of one Judge in a Multi-District Litigation. The recall lawyers at Jones Ward are on the leadership in and have worked on dozens of Multi-District Litigation proceedings (called MDL for short). While it is unclear where these Chevy recall lawsuits will end up, the recall attorneys at Jones Ward will be a part of the team holding Chevy and GM accountable.
What Damages Are There in Chevy Defect Lawsuits
Chevy recall class action lawsuits will be trying to get owners of Chevy cars with defects compensation for their loss in economic value. Even if the cars are repaired, the class action attorneys at Jones Ward believe experts will be able to show that each car has a los in economic value. That is, the re-sale value damages or trade-in value will be lower and cause damages to owners of recalled Chevy cars.
What If I Was Injured In a Chevy With a Defect?
Unfortunately, some people were injured or even killed when their recalled Chevy car experienced an ignition defect that caused the driver to lose control. The recall attorneys at Jones Ward are also investigating cases involving deaths or serious injuries in recalled Chevy cars.
