GM Recall Cases

Texarkana Injury Lawyers Holding GM Accountable for Auto Defects

Automaker GM has recalled 2.6 million of its compact cars due to defective ignition switches—a problem that has already led to at least 13 deaths, according to an April 10, 2014 Associated Press article. The problem with the ignition switches is that they can slip out of position while a person is driving, causing the vehicle to go into "off" or "accessory" mode, which can subsequently result in the engine, brakes, power-assisted steering and airbag capabilities being turned off. This, in turn, can easily result in the driver losing control of the vehicle and getting into a deadly auto accident. The repairs of the ignition switches could potentially take several months to complete.

Have you or a loved one been injured as a result of a defective ignition switch or another defect in a GM vehicle? If so, you are entitled to recover damages from the negligent auto manufacturer.

GM's Failure to Warn Consumers

As reported by the Associated Press, it has taken more than a decade for this recall to be made. Two GM engineers are being accused of trying to hide the ignition switch problem. Lawmakers have questioned GM officials about the company's decision not to fix the issue based on the fact that the repairs would be so expensive and time-consuming. The automaker has insisted that the recalled vehicles can still safely be driven prior to getting repaired as long as certain precautions are taken. Yet, despite GM's assurance, a federal judge in Texas is deciding whether to issue an order to have all the recalled cars grounded until the repairs are completed, according to NBC News. This type of action would require GM being to provide loaner vehicles in the meantime.
