Settlement Reached with General Motors in Case of Man Paralyzed by Defective Camaro

The Ammons Law Firm has successfully negotiated the settlement of a crashworthiness product liability case against General Motors on behalf of a 20-year-old Tennessee man who sustained catastrophic spinal injuries when the 2001 Chevrolet Camaro in which he was the right front passenger was involved in a crash.

At the defendant’s insistence, the amount of the settlement is confidential.

In his lawsuit, the Plaintiff alleged that the structure of the Camaro was defective and made the vehicle unreasonably dangerous and defective. In this crash, the Camaro’s rear body structure, including the left rear tire and wheel, intruded deep into the occupant compartment. The plaintiff contended that an automaker must manufacture its vehicles in such a way that, when a crash occurs, injuries to the people inside the vehicle are minimized to the extent practical. Because General Motors failed to design the Camaro to provide a reasonable level of crash protection for the right front passenger, where the young man was seated, spinal injuries that could have been prevented were suffered by Plaintiff and have left him permanently paralyzed.
