LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

An Alabama law firm is filing a second lawsuit against general motors. The Beasley Allen law firm is pursuing another personal injury lawsuit over flawed ignition switches. 

The first suit involved a family from Lauderdale County. Aubrey Williams' family claims the ignition in her 2006 Cobalt went out. She died when her car crossed into oncoming traffic and hit an 18-wheeler. 

The attorneys' claim if everything had been working properly in this latest case, injuries in this accident would've been minor compared to what this couple is going through. Attorneys said a 2006 Chevy Cobalt shut off while on the road on Halloween night in 2012. Officials said the power steering, power brakes and air bags failed when the car crashed. One man lost an eye and a woman suffered several facial injuries requiring reconstruction surgery.

The Beasley Allen law firm plans to file about 13 additional lawsuits related to the GM ignition defect.

"It's been very clear GM engaged in a massive cover-up of a none defect... that creates hazards on the road way. We have documents of a company in denial to make sure neither the government or the public learned of the defect," said Jere Beasley.

GM has yet to comment on the latest suit.
