Military Families Suing Assault Vehicle Maker Over Deadly Accident
The families of nine fallen military members are now suing the maker of an assault vehicle and calling on the military to stop using them.
It’s in response to an incident that happened nearly one year ago.
The lawsuit is being filed against BAE Systems.
Eight marines and a navy sailor died when the land-and-sea assault vehicle started taking in water off the coast of California.
The lawsuit claims the vehicles have defective doors turning them into death traps.
Family members who lost their love ones hope their lawsuit will force action so nobody else has to go through what they did.
