HARRISBURG — A woman is suing General Motors LLC, Takata Corporation, TK Holdings Inc. and Highland Industries Inc., citing alleged design defect, insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries, liability, negligence and product liability.
Sharon K. Zehner filed a complaint on May 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, alleging that they manufactured a defective product that caused injuries to the plaintiff.
