BENSALEM, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of General Motors Company (“GM” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GM) investors concerning the Company’s possible violations of federal securities laws.

On October 2, 2023, NBC Bay Area reported that a pedestrian had been run over by one of GM’s driverless Cruise AVs, sustaining major injuries. On this news, GM’s stock price fell $1.09, or 3.5%, to close at $31.38 per share on October 3, 2023, thereby injuring investors.

Then, on October 5, 2023, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) held a public hearing to recommend a recall of over 50 million airbags that had been linked to potentially deadly explosions – at least 20 million of which were built into GM’s vehicles, with at least one having led to a confirmed fatality.
