A faulty ignition could prove fatal | Bart Durham Injury Law

A faulty ignition could prove fatal

When you purchase a vehicle, you assume that it will be in good working condition. While you may run into some issues every now and again, you hope that none of these are related to your safety.

Unfortunately, there are times when vehicles are manufactured and sold with safety defects in place. This is the case regarding the GM faulty ignition recall.

With this defect, it's possible that a car's engine and electrical system could shut down when in use. As a result, the air bags are disabled and the driver and passengers are at greater risk of serious injury in the event of a crash.

To date, more than 300 people have been killed as the result of this error. Worse yet, it's been reported that the company could have fixed the problem for as cheap as 57 cents per vehicle.

At our law firm, we know that people are injured every year as a result of defective vehicles. We also know that some people never learn more about the cause of the vehicle failure. It's our goal to help victims and their families understand their legal rights. You don't have to sit back and hope for the best, but you instead have the right to seek compensation.

It's good to know that GM has taken the necessary steps in putting this problem in the past, such as recalling the effected vehicles. Unfortunately, this doesn't mean that the problem will not persist in the future. You have legal rights as a consumer, and there is nothing wrong with protecting them at all costs. Every individual that speaks up potentially saves another from being hurt.
