This week, Hagens Berman filed its seventh class-action complaint against GM since the automaker’s ignition switch defect was made public in February. The newest lawsuit seeks $10 billion in damages on behalf of consumers affected by GM’s vehicle defects and recalls nationwide.

The suit alleges that all vehicles sold by GM following its bankruptcy and reincorporation in 2009 have suffered a loss in value due to GM’s recall of approximately 20 million vehicles worldwide, involving more than 40 different defects in just the past six months.

Hagens Berman was the first firm to file class allegations against GM that did not implicate any bankruptcy claims. The McConnell complaint filed on March 31, 2014, seeks statutory damages for GM’s fraudulent concealment of the ignition switch defect affecting between two to three million vehicles. The firm believes that GM is liable for its conduct post-bankruptcy because it continued to conceal the ignition switch defect from consumers between 2009 and the recalls initiated in 2014, as stated in the complaint.
