If you own one of the General Motors vehicles included in the GM recall, you may qualify to become part of the class action lawsuit. We’ve been helping injured victims like you nationwide for the past 20 years. Because General Motors was aware of the ignition problem for at least ten years, they are responsible for exposing you to danger.
We hold big companies responsible for the damage they’ve done to consumers and have the experience to win your case. Because General Motors failed to warn you about the defect, you were at risk. The vehicle’s air-bags could fail, the electrical system shut down, suffering a loss of brakes and steering.
The Problem With GM Vehicles
If you own a recalled GM vehicle, industry experts state you may be in danger from a faulty ignition. The vehicle can shift from “run” to “accessory”, making the engine and electrical system stop. Failure of the engine, air-bags, brakes and steering systems put you at risk of serious physical harm. It takes a small nudge for the switch to shift in your GM vehicle. The weight of a heavy key chain can make it happen. Drivers have reported problems when they’ve driven over a bump or pothole. Shorter or younger drivers are more likely to have it happen because they sit lower in the seat and are more likely to brush the switch.

General Motors Recall Lawsuits
The recalls that have been issued by General Motors as a result of the faulty ignition switches that they installed in several models of their vehicles have been the object of intense scrutiny on the part of the federal government.
There have been multiple hearings held to determine why the company did not act more quickly when they learned of the defect. Although there has been no satisfactory answer provided as to the reason for the delay in notification, many questions are being asked about whether the company chose to stay quiet in order to try to save money.
Of particular interest is the fact that when the faulty part was replaced, it retained the same identification number.
