Some claims are alleging that GM failed to remedy the defect in a timely manner, which may have resulted in injuries and death
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
Flood law group today announced that they are actively investigating claims on behalf of anyone who has sustained injuries possibly related to a recent auto recall issued by General Motors. The recall affects the ignition systems of several popular car models manufactured by General Motors.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V047000, 2/10/2014), the recall affects the ignition systems of the following car models produced by GM:
- 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHRs
- 2006-2007 Pontiac Solstices
- 2006-2007 Saturn Sky models
- 2007 Pontiac G5 models
- Ion models
- Cobalt models
According to a report from the Los Angeles Times (As many as 303 deaths linked to faulty ignition switches in recalled GM cars, 3/13/2014) the recall affects as many as 1.6 million cars in the makes and models listed above. According to the LA Times report, the recall was instituted after it was found that weight on the key and/or poor road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the “run” position and shut down the engine. The LA Times report also states that in the car models affected by the recall, the air bags may not deploy if the key is moved out of the “run” position, potentially posing a greater risk of injury to those in the vehicle if it is involved in an accident.
According to a report from The New York Times (G.M. Reveals It Was Told of Ignition Defect in ’01, 3/12/2014), General Motors admitted to being aware of the defect in the ignition system as early as 2001.
“Flood Law Group is available to investigate potential lawsuits on behalf of people injured in accidents involving the recalled vehicles,” said Christopher Brown, Director of Communications for Flood Law Group. “Some claims are alleging that GM failed to remedy the defect in a timely manner, which may have resulted in injuries and death.”
