Was Your Car Part of a GM Recall?
PA Auto Defect Lawyers Explain Recent Recalls and Legal Options
Since 2014, General Motors Company (GM) has recalled over 17 million automobiles in the United States for various defects. More than two million of these vehicles were recalled due to defective ignition switches. This defect may cause a loss of power to the engine and vehicle, including power steering and brakes. If this happens at high speeds, then a serious crash may result. According to most sources, GM’s defective ignition switch has been linked to hundreds of accidents and 124 deaths. Worse, investigators discovered that GM had known about the defect for years but waited more than a decade to issue a recall. If you suffered a catastrophic injury or lost a loved one due to a vehicle included in a GM recall, then you may have options to recover compensation for your injuries and other damages.
