GENERAL MOTORS CORP Winfield Alabama

Complaint: RE: U.S. AUTOMAKER GENERAL MOTORS CAUSED MY 19 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER’S DEATH AND GOT AWAY WITH IT. NOTE: PLEASE BARE WITH MY TYPING SKILLS AND GRAMMER NEITHER ARE ONE OF MY BEST TALENTSAND THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME IT HAS BEEN OVER 5 YEARS SINCE MY DAUGHTER AMANDA , 19 YEARS OLD DIED IN AN AUTO CRASH.THE CRASH OCCURED DEC. 29, 1999 DUE TO A DEFECT OF THE AUTO WHICH GENERAL MOTORS BECAME AWARE OF IN MARCH, 1999, 9 MONTHS BEFORE THE CRASH. GENERAL MOTORS HAD CHOSEN TO NOTIFY OWNERS WHO LIVED IN NORTHEN STATES BUT NOT OWNERS IN SOUTHERN STATES. THE DEFECT WAS- IT WAS POSSIBLE THE ENGINE CRADLE MOUNTING BOLTS MAY BREAK LOOSE AND CAUSE THE STEERING RODS TO BREAK AND THE DRIVER TO LOSE CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED IN MY DAUGHTER’S CASE. I DID NOT BECOME AWARE OF THE DEFECT UNTIL MORE THAN 2 YEARS AFTER THE CRASH.AT THAT POINT I CONTACTED GM. THE FIRST GM REPRESENTIVE I TALKED TO WAS VERY NICE AND CARING UNTIL I ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE DEFECT. THEN, I STARTED GETTING A RUN AROUND ABOUT WHO I SHOULD BE TALKING TO, AMD OT THIS ONE AND NOT THIS ONE AND ETC. ALL AT ONCE I RECEIVE A LETTER FROM GM. STATING THAT I SHOULD CONTACT A CERTAIN GM REPRESENTIVE WITHIN 10 DAYS. IF I DID NOT THE MATTER WOULD BE CLOSED.I TRIED AND TRIED AND WAS UNABLE TO CONTACT THIS CERTAIN REPRESENTIVE. IT WAS LIKE THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE I WAS UNABLE TO CONTACT HER. AT THAT POINT I BEGAN CONTACTING ATTORNEYS IN ALABAMA. THEY WERE ALL VERY INTERESTED UNTIL I TOLD THEM IT HAD BEEN MORE THAN 2 YEARS SINCE THE CRASH. THEY ALL SAID IT WAS JUST TO BAD CAUSE THE STATUE OF LIMITATION HAD PASSED. ALL OF THIS, THE DEVASTATING DEATH OF MY DAUGHTER WHO HAD JUST MONTHS BEFORE GRAUATED AND HAD PLAN TO GO TO COLLEGE AND BECOME A MEDICAL LAB TECH LIKE ME. SHE WAS NOT ONLY MY DAUGHTER BUT ALSO MY BEST FRIEND. WHEN HER MOTHER AND I DIVORCED IN 1994, AMANDA HAD CHOSEN TO LIVE WITH ME. WE WERE VERY VERY CLOSE. I WAS THE FIRST TO HOLD HER WHEN SHE WAS BORN AND CARRIED HER FROM DELIVERY TO THE NURSERY. WE HAD A DAUGHTER-FATHER BOND LIKE NO ONE HAD EVER KNOWN. SHE WAS MY LITTLE GIRL. WHEN I STARTED GETTING THIS 2-YEAR STSTUE OF LIMITATION LAW I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. THOSE FIRST TWO YEARS I WAS ABSOLUTLY AND TOTALLY IN SHOCK AND COULD HARDLY THINK AT ALL. STILL, TO THIS VERY DAY, NOT ONE SINGLE DAY GOES BY WITH MY THINKING OF AMANDA. I STILL HAVE TO TAKE ANXIETY MEDICATION, BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION AMONG OTHERS. MY HEALTH HAS DEMINISHED AND SUFFERED A HEART ATTACK AND OPEN HEART SURGERY ALL BROUGHT ON BY STRESS. AMANDA’S BROTHERS AND SISTER ARE JUST NUMB AND CAN’T OVERCOME THE VOID THIS HAS LEFT IN THEIR LIVES. AMANDA’S GRANDMOTHER GREIVED ALL THE WAY UP TO HER RECENT DEATH. ALL OF US WHO WERE SO CLOSE TO AMANDA HAS FALLEN APART AND SUFFER FROM DAILEY GREIF, ANXIETY, STRESS AND DEPRESSION. I DECIDED TO FILE A COMPLAINT AND INVESTIGATION WITH NHTSA. FINALLY AFTER 3 MORE YEARS AND A REFILING OF THE COMPLAINT, NHTSA FOUND THAT THE DEFECT CAUSED THE CRASH. THEY DID APPLOGIZE FOR TAKING SO LONG.THIS STILL DIDN’T CHANGE THE 2-YEAR STATUE OF LIMITATION. I CONTACTED ALABAMA SENATOR RICHARD SHELBY AND NEVER RECEIVED A RESPONSE.IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS I DECIDED TO CONTACT SOMEONE IN MICHIGAN SINCE THE VEHICLE WAS MANUFACTURED IN THAT STATE.I REMEMBERED GEOPHREY FEIGER THE ATTORNEY WAS LOCATED IN MICHIGAN. I HAD WATCHED HIM ON COURT TV AND WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH HIM AND THINKING HE AS SO CARING AND COMPASSIONATE ABOUT DOING THE RIGHT THING.BUT, TO MY DISMAY, THE ATTORNEY I WAS IN CONTACT WITH IN FEIGER’S FIRM NOT ONLY TOSSED THE 2-YEAR STATUE OF LIMITATION AT ME BUT ALSO, AND I QUOTE,I AM UNWILLING TO LOOK AT ANY DOCUMENTATION CONCERNING THIS CASE. ALTHOUGH IT WAS NOT FEIGER THAT I TALKED TO, IT REALLY HURT MY FEELING THAT THIS OTHER ATTORNEY WAS SO COLD. STILL DETERMINED, I CONTACTED THE MICHIGAN STATE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE, CHRIS COX. OF ALL THE PEOPLE I HAVE CONTACTED HE WAS PROBABLY THE MOST CONCERNED, CARING AND UNDERSTANDING BUT WAS UNABLE TO HELP ME. HE DID REFER ME TO THE MICHIGAN MEDIATION RESOLUTION COURT. HE TOLD ME TO CONTACT THEIR OFFICE IN WAYNE COUNTY WHICH IS WHERE GM IS LOCATED. I MAILED THEM ALL THE DOCUMENTATION I HAVE FROM THE BEGINNING OF THIS ORDEAL UNTIL PRESENT. AFTER ABOUT 3-4 WEEKS, I CONTACTED THEM AGAIN AND FINALLY RECEIVED A CALL FROM THEM. WE WENT OVER EVERYTHING AND HE SAID HE WOULD GET BACK WITH ME IN ABOUT A WEEK. HE SAID HE WOULD TRY TO SETUP A MEETING WITH GM.THAT HAS BEEN OVER A MONTH AGO AND I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING FROM HIM. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE MICHIGAN ATTORNEY GENERAL, IT SEEM EVERYONE THINKS I SHOULD JUST FORGET ABOUT IT. THE 2-YEAR STATUE OF LIMITATION HAS PASSED BUT 2 YEARS, 20 YEARS, 100 YEARS, MY LOVELY DAUGHTER IS GONE FOREVER. I HAVE LOST ALL THAT WAS SO, SO DEAR TO ME BECAUSE GM DECIDED NOT TO WARN MY DAUGHTER. SOME MAY SAY, OH, I’M JUST LOOKING FOR MONEY. WELL, AT THIS POINT, YES, I AM. I WANT GENERAL MOTORS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND YES I WANT THEN TO PAY THE MAXIMUM IN MONETARY SETTLEMENT.NO ONE CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION. HOW MUCH IS YOUR CHILD WORTH. TO ME, NO AMOUNT OF MONEY WOULD EVER BE ENOUGH. I JUST WANT GM TO FEEL A SMALL FRACTION OF THE DEVASTATION OF MY FAMILY AND MYSELF. I HAVE COME TO THE REALIZATION THAT THIS SITUATION WILL NEVER MEAN AS MUCH TO ANYONE AS IT DOES TO ME. UPDATE AS OF 04/19/2006- WAYNE MEDIATION HAS DROPPED THE CASE BECAUSE GENERAL MOTORS HAS REFUSED TO MEDIATE. GENERAL MOTORS DOES NOT CARE THAT THEY TOOK MY DAUGHTERS LIFE.
