General Motors Corporation and Steve Schmitt Motor Company are being sued by Herbert L. Cline after he experienced dangerous problems with defectively designed steering and braking systems in his Chevrolet Cavalier.
Several days after purchasing his 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier, the car went out of control as the steering and braking system stopped working properly. The defect caused him to swerve out of his “intended path of travel” and strike a cement median wall. This collision caused the airbags to deploy and caused the driver even further problems regaining control of the vehicle. Finally, the car came to a stop on an embankment.
Cline claims that the manufacturers were negligent and failed to adequately inspect the vehicle’s defective design before it was released into the market. He also claims that there was not sufficient warnings provided about the potential dangers of his vehicle.
Cline is seeking damages in excess of $400,000. He claims to have suffered severe injuries and seeks damages for physical and mental pain, disfigurement, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, medical expenses, and emotional distress.
