Chrysler bankruptcy must protect the victims of defective cars


Tomorrow morning, Public Citizen will appear in U.S. Bankruptcy Court on behalf of consumer organizations that have filed objections to the Chrysler bankruptcy. As currently structured, the bankruptcy proposal exempts Chrysler from most of its responsibility and accountability for products sold before the bankruptcy. Victims of poorly designed or defective vehicles would be unable to receive compensation for their injuries. Chrysler is seeking to avoid liability even for injuries and losses that occur after the bankruptcy.

While there are strong legal arguments about why the bankruptcy must be structured in way to protect consumers, there is also a very compelling human argument made by victims such as Jeremy Warriner in the video above.
