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. Our Texarkana personal injury attorneys at Langdon Davis Law Firm, can help you seek compensation through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. When automakers fail to make their vehicles safe for consumers, or when they fail to notify consumers about safety issues in a timely manner, they can be held legally liable for the injuries that occur as a result.

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.

This is not the only recall that GM has issued in the past, nor is GM the only auto manufacture to have to recall a massive number of vehicles. Our law firm accepts claims of various types of vehicle and vehicle part recalls.

    “Thank you for you and your staffs hard work.”
    Brent Langdon is the most effecient and professional attorney I have had the pleasure to work with.
    - Former Client
    “Brent was everything and more.”
    He was tough with negotiations. At the end of the day he was able to get a deal that wasn’t only fair for me but for my child. After hiring a less than average attorney I realized quick you get what you pay for, I then hired Brent . Brent is expensive but hes good, fair and honest. I’d recommend Brent to anyone in Arkansas or Texas.

    “Best lawyer you will ever find”
    I have to say, when I hired Brent Langdon in November 2013, I was a very hopeless, desperate person. My daughter had been turned over to her father when I did not show up for a court date. I was not properly notified of a court date by him nor his attorney. So, I decided, "I'm tired of this. I'm going to find the best lawyer I can find." So I went to Langdon Davis. Initially, I was there to see Demaris Hart. However, she was not there at that time (I did not have an appointment with her, I just walked in the office). I spoke with the woman at the front desk about meeting with Demaris, and she said she was not there at that time but there was another attorney who I could talk with about my case. I went back and spoke with Brent about my situation and he said he'd take it on. A few months later, we had a court date and got the order my ex filed overturned. My ex has consistently given me problems since then, though. We have been in and out of the court room from day one, with him trying to take our daughter away from me. Brent Langdon has stuck by my side through every bit of it. Not to discredit Demaris whatsoever by this statement, I have read her profile and know she is a great attorney also, but I am SO glad I hired Brent. That was the best decision I have ever made. This man has LOYALLY stayed by my side through all of this litigation. He has fought for me and my daughter from day one. And I'm glad to say, last week we won our case. If you are looking for an attorney to help you, guide you, be prepared for your case without any worry on your end, and most importantly FIGHT for you, this is your lawyer. Trust me. You will see the passion he has, and the incredible law knowledge he has studied 25+ years for. Respectfully submitted, A PROUD Brent Langdon client
