General Motors Recalls Record Number of Vehicles

On Behalf of | Jun 16, 2014 | Car Accidents

General Motors is in the midst of recalling its most vehicles in a given year, surpassing 13 million vehicles in the US alone. Driving a defective vehicle can be extremely dangerous, as it puts you and your family at risk. If you’ve been injured due to a defective vehicle, contact a personal injury attorney today.

One issue with the recalls isn’t just that the vehicles were defective, but that GM waited more than five years after it knew certain vehicles were faulty. As a result of this unnecessary delay, people all over the country are at risk of great bodily injury. The delay is responsible for causing 13 fatalities, all which might have been avoided with a timely recall. In some instances, families of the victims received recall notices after their victim’s death. GM recently agreed to pay a $35 million fine for failing to perform a timely recall.

If you do happen to be involved in a car accident involving a defective vehicle, you should contact a personal injury attorney immediately. Your attorney will be able to protect the vehicle from any further tampering with immediate notice. If you delay in contacting an attorney, the vehicle may be handed over to insurance companies resulting in the loss of essential evidence.
