problem #7

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles
The event was a car pulled out in front of me which still hit the driver's side of my vehicle (2000 Chevy Silverado). Then my truck had a full frontal impact at greater than 30 mph into a dirt wall in which neither the driver's nor passenger's airbags deployed (the truck is totalled). I hit the steering wheel and got a concussion with blood around the brain, a broke cheek bone, and fractured hip. My wife was 33 weeks preganant at the time and her water broke and she got a compound fracture in the lower leg/ankle. As a result of the water breaking my son was born 3 days later 7 weeks premature. As for what was done to correct the problem I'm hoping it will at least be investigated to make sure this is not a systemic problem (I.e. software screwup something not hooked up right in the airbag system etc). I have pics of the truck and the crash site I can send if necessary. I can also provide the location of the truck so it can be inspected.

I contacted sarah schille of General Motors about this failure.she sent an investigator to tom benson to look at the truck. He did whatever he does to collect data from the vehicle and then takes pictures etc. And sends all of the information to GM for evaluation. I feel this accident was severe enough for the airbags deploy and I'm not satisfied at all with GM's response to the situation. I requested the report and a copy of the deployment criteria for the airbags I was told that information will not be supplied. How am I to know if this is a failure or not. This information should not be private to the manufacturer only. I want someone to look into this problem.
