GM Ignition Switch Recall
GM Ignition Switch Recall Switch Demands Strong Legal Action in Tennessee
Defective ignition switches on General Motors vehicles have been linked to 12 deaths and 31 accidents nationwide as early as 2001, according to media reports in March 2014, when GM announced it was recalling 1.6 million vehicles. That means GM knew about these defective car parts for more than a decade before the GM ignition switch recall and did little or nothing to correct this design flaw. That’s just wrong. But you can take a stand if you or a loved one was injured or you lost a loved one in an accident. Our Tennessee products liability lawyers at Meade Law Group urge victims of such serious car accidents to call (423) 464-7779 immediately. You have rights. We can fight for them. Act promptly. A delay may affect your rights!
Initially, GM claimed the company first became aware of the problem in 2004 involving Chevrolet Cobalts, which turned off if someone bumped the ignition switch. Now, GM admits the company became aware of possible problems with ignition switches in the Saturn Ion in 2001 during the development stage, although GM insists it thought the company resolved the problem during the design stage.
GM’s defective ignition switches resulted in fatal auto accidents and serious injuries as a result of the airbag in some vehicles failing to deploy in auto accidents. Specifically, four people died in eight, front-impact car crashes in Saturn Ions in which the airbags failed to deploy. Others died or were seriously injured due to other design flaws linked to the defective GM ignition switches. Such accidents illustrate just how dangerous accidents involving defective airbags can be for drivers and passengers.
