General Motors has recalled millions of vehicles due to defects in ignition switches. Vehicles have been shown to shut off without warning, the electrical system to shut down, and the airbags to become disabled.

A defective ignition switch in more than 1 million General Motors vehicles has been shown to cause the engine to shut off without warning, and disable the air bags. Initially discovered more than a decade ago, GM failed to address the issue since that time. Sadly, the defect is now thought to be blamed in the deaths of over 300 people in crashes in which the air bags did not deploy.
Beginning in January, 2014, GM has recalled many of their vehicles for various issues.
UPDATE: General Motors has added additional vehicles to their recall list as of June 2014. The list below has been updated to reflect that change. If you or a loved one was seriously injured in an accident involving a car on the GM recall list, please call Pulaski & Middleman, PLLC at 800-421-6590 for a confidential consultation.
You may be entitled to compensation.
In the wake of further studies it is possible that GM may recall additional models soon. Additionally, it has been reported that the faulty ignition switches could have been repaired for less than $1 each.

GM has reported several things that could cause the ignition switch to fail. If the car goes over a hard bump, or if the steering column or ignition switch is suddenly jilted or jarred, or if the weight of the key ring is significant and causes the ignition switch to loosen over time, then the engine may suddenly turn off and the airbags may become disabled.
Traffic deaths caused by such conditions began being reported many years ago, yet GM did not recall the affected vehicles to fix the problem. GM has admitted that it was tracking and following such cases with interest, but still did nothing.
According to GM’s own internal investigation, the issue was first discovered in 2001 by GM engineers on the Saturn Ion, wherein they noted that the ignition switch could migrate from the “Run” position to the “Accessory” or “Off” position. A later report indicated that the automaker’s engineers had redesigned the ignition switch and that the problem had been resolved.
Still, following the switch redesign, a GM technician observed a stall while driving. The service technician concluded that the weight of the key ring had worn out the ignition switch. The switch was replaced and no further investigation or action was taken.
More fatal crashes followed and as a result, GM has been forced to now disclose and admit it’s own negligence in this matter, having delayed the repair of more than 1 million vehicles in a “wait and see” attitude that resulted in deaths that may have been prevented.
If you or a loved one was injured or in one of the GM vehicles listed above, or if someone you love was killed after a sudden stall resulting in an accident, you need legal representation fast. Pulaski & Middleman, P.L.L.C. is now accepting cases for those who suffered such an injury or death.
