WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (PRWEB) March 26, 2014
The recent recall of 3.1 million General Motors vehicles has prompted North Carolina auto accident lawyers Mike Lewis Attorneys to investigate claims of injury, accident and wrongful deaths associated with the defective models, and explore the damages available to individuals who wish to file a claim.
“Our firm is prepared to help those impacted by the recall make sense of their legal rights. We believe auto manufacturers should be held accountable for whatever internal breakdown, if any, leads to the production of defective vehicles,” Senior Partner Mike Lewis said.
On Feb. 10, 2014, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the initial General Motors recall of several vehicles for faulty ignition switches, including 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, and 2007 Pontiac G5 vehicles. Two weeks later the recall was expanded to 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR and Pontiac Solstice vehicles, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion vehicles and 2007 Saturn Sky vehicles.
On Mar. 17, 2014, a Reuters report revealed that GM issued a recall on the following vehicles for non-deployment of side-impact air bags: 2008-2009 and all 2010-2013 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia crossovers, some 2009 and all 2010-2013 Chevrolet Traverses, and some 2008-2009 and all 2010 Saturn Outlooks. Additionally, 303,000 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans were recalled for noncompliance with head-impact safety standards for passengers who may not be belted.
In the same Reuter’s report, GM CEO Mary Barra stated the company is working with the manufacturer of the ignition switches to supply another line of replacement parts and that by the second week of April customers would be notified of these details by mail.
Mike Lewis Attorneys is currently accepting inquiries related to GM’s recall, and is prepared to discuss whether an individual has a valid claim for an accident, injury or wrongful death.
