The Houston, Texas, class action law firm of Heard, Robins, Cloud and Lubel and the Los Angeles, Calif., class action law firm of Arbogast and Berns requested Bisnar Chase to head the litigation of the defective emergency brake portion of the class action lawsuit.
Bisnar Chase was selected due to the firm’s national expertise in successfully litigating automobile defect cases. They have won numerous cases against Ford, General Motors, Chrysler and various Japanese automakers.
According to court documents, LaRonda Hunter and Robin Gonzales sued GM way back in 1999 on behalf of themselves and all other owners of several makes of GM trucks and SUVs, alleging defective emergency brakes.
In their class action lawsuit, the women are asking that GM replace the emergency brakes. They are also asking for damages and monetary restitution; for themselves and the estimated 4 million owners and lessees of these GM vehicles.
According to Brian Chase, partner at Bisnar Chase, General Motors could have solved this problem nearly a decade ago, when they first learned of the defective emergency brakes, but they has not corrected emergency brakes on the trucks and SUVs with automatic transmissions, nor has GM warned its customers about the emergency brakes on these vehicles.
The General Motors vehicles covered by the class action are the: 2000-2003 GMC Yukon (1500 Series); 2000-2003 Chevrolet Suburban Tahoe (1500 Series); 1999- 2003 Chevrolet Silverado (1500 Series, trucks); 2002-2003 Cadillac Escalade XT; 2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV; 1998-2003 Chevrolet Blazer; 2002-2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer ET; 1998-2003 GMC Jimmy; 1999-2003 GMC Sierra (1500 Series); 2002-2003 GMC Envoy XL; 2002-2003 Chevrolet Avalanche (1500 Series) and 1998-2003 Oldsmobile Bravada, according to court documents.
