The General Motors Recall

By now you've probably heard quite a bit about General Motors and its recall of more than 2.5 million vehicles for ignition switch malfunctions that can cause the vehicles to suddenly stop in the middle of a drive. GM's CEO testified before Congress at contentious, televised hearings, and the comedy program Saturday Night Live skewered her performance at those hearings.

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.
