A decade of guilt over GM crash


In fact, in 2006 Anderson sued General Motors in a personal injury case claiming the air bag system in her Saturn Ion was defective because the air bags did not deploy in the 2004 crash. She later settled with GM for $75,000 – but after attorney fees and payments to Mikale’s family, Anderson says she ended up with just $7,000. Never once, during those settlement talks, Anderson says, did GM mention any potential problem with the car’s ignition switch.
