The General Motors Recall
At The Cochran Firm, our defective product attorneys are primarily concerned with the human costs of GM's errors. GM has connected at least 13 deaths to the ignition switch malfunctions, which can disable the vehicle's airbags in a crash. And the number of innocent victims killed by this malfunction might be even higher.
Further, investigators are continuing to look into the question of what GM knew and when they knew it. Sadly, history has made clear that large companies rarely move with impressive speed upon hearing of defective products.
If you have one of the affected vehicles (a Chevy Cobalt or HHR, a Pontiac G5 or Solstice or a Saturn Ion or Sky), you should remove everything from your keyring save your key. Then, contact the nearest GM dealer about a replacement part, which they will install for free once they receive the proper parts.
Our defective product attorneys will monitor the situation and evaluate questions of liability arising from this tragic situation. For more information, you can visit GM's ignition recall site.
If you've been hurt by a defective or poorly designed product, our defective product attorneys will listen to your story. Please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.

Sharing the Road With Pedestrians
Unfortunately, the number of pedestrian injuries we see makes clear that too many drivers fail to take this responsibility seriously. We can help if you've been struck by a car while walking or biking in a safe, legal fashion.

You shouldn't have to pay the price when you were following the law and walking safely. We can give you a little relief at this difficult time.

Johnson & Johnson Destroyed Valuable Transvaginal Mesh Data
The numerous lawsuits against J&J, consolidated in a Charleston, West Virginia courtroom, allege that the company's transvaginal mesh devices were faulty and caused serious internal injuries to many women.
