Last year automaker General Motors continued to deal with the aftermath of a massive recall of over 2 million vehicles that were possibly equipped with a defective ignition switch. Nearly half of the defective vehicles remained unrepaired nine months after the recall was issued. Towards the end of last year, GM began issuing $25 gift cards to vehicle owners who brought their cars in for recall repairs.
While the defective vehicles remained unfixed, the death toll resulting from the defect stacks up. So far there have been at least 30 deaths that have been linked to the defective switches, while hundred of injures are still being reported. If you are an owner of one of these defective vehicles, do you need a lawyer?
