Local Attorney Responds to NHTSA Fining GM for $35 Million

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced Friday that it will fine General Motors $35 million for delaying the recall of more than two million vehicles for ignition switch defects. However, local attorney Bob Hilliard of Hilliard Munoz Gonzales L.L.P. says that's not enough.

In a press release sent out Friday, Hilliard states, "$35 million is pennies in a fountain. Less than one-percent of GM's total net worth and cash on hand. NHTSA has always been seen as a toothless tiger -- a joke inside the walls of the big car companies. This is a complete victory for GM and another stain on this shameful agency!"

Hilliard has filed personal injury lawsuits against GM across the U.S., and his firm is actively seeking to represent other victims from GM's defective ignition switches.
