If you were injured in a crash involving a GM-manufactured product any time in the last 10 years, it’s worth your while to talk to an experienced attorney about your case. GM has had several major recalls in recent years, recalls of defective car parts that cause severe injuries and even deaths.
We have posted many blogs here on our website to help you learn about the potential problems posed by faulty ignition switches, bad airbag software, and even ineffective welds. We’ve brought you stories of victims who were killed and their grieving families, and we will continue to do this. We believe it is important to make sure people hurt by defective products manufactured by profit-driven companies are fairly compensated.
In addition to the recalls discussed above, GM has an open recall on defective power steering in over one million of its vehicles. In short, the electric power steering (EPS) module can fail. If this happens, the driver can lose control of the car, causing a crash.
This power steering defect plagues several different GM models:
- Chevy Cobalts, HHRs, Malibus, and Malibu Maxxes;
- Pontiac G6s; and
- Saturn Auras and Ions.
The specific defect varies from model to model. However, you can check on your car using your VIN at safercar.gov.
If you were in a crash due to a steering problem in one of these GM vehicles, contact our office today, even if the accident happened years ago. A recent federal court decision has opened the door for some older lawsuits to be filed against the company. We can help you determine whether you could benefit from this recent development.
