Wreck Victim’s Family Sues GM for Wrongful Death
A product liability suit is filed against General Motors, the manufacturer of the 1995 GMC Suburban driven in the accident.Plaintiff’s attorney Joel Howell said Burns died because an interior compartment switch opened the door when it was hit by moving luggage.Macon testified she was driving when the vehicle veered right and went into a spin. She said her sister’s shoulder went toward the door, the door opened, and Burns was ejected.Defense attorney Paul Cassissa is representing General Motors. He contends GM is not responsible because the switch was not made by the company.
