DALLAS (PRWEB) April 11, 2014
The national plaintiffs’ law firm of Baron & Budd has acted swiftly to take action against GM on behalf of people who have been injured or killed due to an alleged ignition switch problem affecting several of the manufacturer’s models. More than 2 million vehicles have been recalled due to a potentially dangerous flaw that could suddenly shut down an automobile and disable its air bags. (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/11/business/gm-suspends-2-engineers-in-switch-inquiry.html?hp) A New York Times article published in March 2014 reports that at least 12 deaths have been linked to the faulty switches, and that the manufacturer received reports about the issue as early as 2001. Along with co-counsel, Baron and Budd was one of the first law firms to file a lawsuit against GM regarding the alleged faulty ignition switches. (Galdina Maciel et al. v. General Motors LLC, case number 4:14-cv-01339, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California) (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/13/business/gm-reveals-it-was-told-of-ignition-defect-in-01.html?_r=0)
These are the vehicles affected by the recent recall:
- Chevrolet Cobalt
- Chevrolet HHR
- Pontiac Solstice
- Pontiac G5

“We are taking action so that GM will be held accountable for the serious issues caused by this alleged defect.” said Roland Tellis, shareholder with national law firm Baron and Budd.
