Detroit’s own General Motors recalled over 7 million cars this year domestically. It’s no longer just ignition switches causing the problems, check out these other recalls:

  • 2,440,524 car for defective tail-lamp malfunctions
  • 111,889 previous generation Chevrolet Corvettes for loss of low-beam head lamps
  • 140,067 Chevrolet Malibus from the 2014 because of their hydraulic brake booster malfunctions
  • 19,225 Cadillac CTS 2013-2014 models for windshield wiper failures
  • 477 full-size trucks from the 2014 and 2015 model years for a tie-rod defect that can lead to a crash

These defects are serious – this is one of the biggest automobile companies in the world. As a result of the faulty ignition switches, there have already been 14 reported deaths.

If you’ve been injured because of a defective product, you may have a defective product liability claim.

Usually, there are three ways that products can be defective or dangerous: they have a defect in the design, they have a defect in the manufacturing or they do not include adequate instructions or warnings. Too often people are harmed or debilitated by products that are defective, unsafe and present an “unreasonable danger“ to the public. No one should have to suffer because of shoddy products.
