Charles Davis, a resident of Kansas, filed a claim against GM after he discovered that his Trail Blazer did not have a stability control device. While Davis was driving his 2004 Trail Blazer over an icy bridge in January he lost control. His vehicle swerved all over the road and eventually rolled, causing Davis to suffer injuries. Davis claims that his vehicle did not have the version of an electronic stability control that had been placed in previous models of the popular Trail Blazer.
The electric stability control is used to help prevent loss of control when the vehicle swerves. Davis argues that GM did not meet the federal safety standards and regulations in the design of the 2004 Trail Blazer. He suggests that alternative designs would have prevented his injuries as well as the damage to his vehicle. Davis is suing for medical expenses, lost wages, impairment, physical pain, and disfigurement.
