Products Liability Litigation for Injury and Death Due to GM Defective Ignition Systems

GM ignition injury lawsuits allow persons and the family members of persons harmed in recalled GM vehicles to seek compensation for the expenses, pain, suffering, and losses they have endured as a result of the defective ignition switch. The GM ignition switch recall represents a major low point in General Motors history, now that federal criminal and civil investigations have revealed the circumstances surrounding the recall. Today we know that GM was aware of the ignition switch defect before the 2005 Chevy Cobalts were even released for sale. The defective part was used in roughly 6 million vehicles, posing serious safety risks to millions of Americans over the past decade.

Understanding the GM Ignition Defect

The defective ignition switched result in a dangerous driving condition whereby the key can inadvertently switch from the "run" position to the "off" or "accessory" position, cutting power to the engine, brakes, and steering, and disabling the airbags. Collisions that occur as a result of the loss of engine power are highly dangerous to passengers in the absence of air bags. Persons harmed in an accident resulting from the faulty ignition switch may suffer from brain injuries, paralysis, internal organ damage, as well as other major injuries and death.

Evidence uncovered in an early GM injury lawsuit shows that company engineers became aware of the ignition switch defect starting in 2001. At various points throughout the ensuing years, GM has investigated the problem and devised various remedies, but failed to inform the public or issue a widespread recall. GM's inaction on this issue has been the subject of federal criminal and civil probes, a $35 million fine, and multiple congressional hearings. A widespread ignition recall was not issued until 2014, more than a decade after engineers at the company first became aware of the problem.
