San Diego Personal Injury, GM defect intentionally concealed

GM has released new details about another serious defect in their vehicles leading to personal injury lawsuits.

This increases the chance of serious personal injury and  wrongful death.

San Diego Alert, First wrongful death suit in massive GM recall

The first wrongful death claim against General Motors (GM) has been filed in the wake of revelations that GM was aware of an automotive defect for over a decade, but failed to take appropriate corrective measures. The defect involves the ignition switch in the Saturn Ion and the Chevy Cobalt. If the car's keys have a heavy keychain on them while the keys are in the ignition, the extra weight can cause the ignition switch to suddenly turn off. This causes the car's steering, braking, and airbags to deactivate, leaving the occupants in the vehicle in peril. GM reported that the defect has been linked to twelve deaths. Independent reports suggest the figure is more than three hundred deaths.
