WILLIAMSON – A North Matewan man is suing General Motors over claims he purchased a defective vehicle that did not protect him during an accident.
Kenneth Ray Cox filed the lawsuit against General Motors in Mingo Circuit Court alleging failure to warn, negligent design and other counts.
Cox claims he purchased a vehicle manufactured by the defendant in September 2013, and on Nov. 30, 2018, he was involved in an auto accident wherein his airbags did not deploy and he was injured.
The plaintiff alleges he would not have been injured if his airbags would have deployed.
Cox is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. He is represented by Justin J. Marcum of Marcum Law Office in Williamson.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Miki Thompson.
