Interview Opportunity: Hagens Berman Attorney Leading GM Ignition Class Action Available for Comment on Today’s 8.4 Million Auto Recall
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Attorney Rob Carey, partner at consumer-rights law firm Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, is available for interview regarding General Motors’ (NYSE: GM) latest round of recalls today affecting more than 8.4 million vehicles, bringing the total number of recalled GM vehicles to more than 28 million.
“Today’s massive recall by GM certainly substantiates our belief that their corporate behavior will continue to depress resale values not only for those who drive recalled vehicles, but for every GM owner, a claim that we look forward to demonstrating to the court”
Carey can provide context for what the expanded recall means for GM consumers, the company and the cases currently on file against GM, including a claim that the recalls have economically harmed all GM car owners, not just those who own recalled vehicles.
“Today’s massive recall by GM certainly substantiates our belief that their corporate behavior will continue to depress resale values not only for those who drive recalled vehicles, but for every GM owner, a claim that we look forward to demonstrating to the court,” said Carey.
Earlier this month, Hagens Berman filed a class action against GM to seek compensation based on the automaker’s damaged brand perception. If certified, the class would represent as many as 15 million GM car owners and put GM’s exposure at more than $10 billion, according to attorneys. Hagens Berman has also filed class actions regarding a variety of recalls and theories, including some that are based entirely on post-bankruptcy conduct for the alleged misinformation provided to dealers repairing consumers’ cars.
Carey can also discuss his beliefs regarding possible motivations for GM’s decision to widen the number of recalls.
“As we learn more about how GM is orchestrating these rounds of recalls, it raises some interesting questions to their motivations, especially around their obligations to consumers for cars built before the bankruptcy,” added Carey.
Carey is located in Phoenix and available for on-camera of phone interviews. Call Mark Firmani at 206-919-9357 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
