GM Ignition Switch Recall

The attorneys at the Drug Injury Legal Group are currently investigation injury cases that resulted from use of a car or truck that was subject to the GM ignition switch recall.  The widely reported and talked about defect has brought the executives and engineers at GM under scrutiny.

GM Ignition Switch Recall

The GM Ignition switch defect causes cars to lose power and shut off.  It has been said that if GM used a part in their cars that costs less than a dollar more, than the recall could have been avoided.

It is this brazen disregard for the safety of consumers that lead to the GM ignition switch recall.  Fortunately, the current executives of GM are owning up to the wrong doing of their predecessors and have created an injury settlement fund for GM Ignition Switch Recall Lawsuits.  If you or a loved one was involved n a car accident because of a GM Ignition switch failure, please contact the GM Recall Lawsuit attorneys at Drug Injury Legal today.

GM Ignition Switch Recall Lawsuits

The GM ignition switch recall has brought over 6 million vehicles into the shop for repairs so far.  Many lawsuits have been filed for injuries caused by the GM ignition switch recall, including personal and economic loss injuries.  Many are worried that GM’s bankruptcy a few years ago could affect settlement offers and that GM could potentially avoid having to compensate victims for the injuries due to the GM ignition switch recall.  However, GM chose to set aside money to compensate victims rather than fight about the bankruptcy implications. The public relations debacle that would have ensued from the manufacturer trying to avoid paying those it injured after receiving a bailout from US taxpayers to stay in business possibly weighed in on the decision to compensate those injured by the GM ignition switch recall.

This means that if you have suffered because of a GM ignition switch recall, there is potentially money set aside for your recovery.
