At The Carlson Law Firm, we represent individuals across the nation who have suffered serious injuries, or the loss of a loved one, due to an auto accident where the airbags failed to deploy.
General Motor's flawed ignition switch recall is one of the deadliest auto recalls in history, killing 124 people and injuring hundreds more.
GM was aware of a deadly flaw in its ignition switches but chose to keep customers and regulators in the dark for years. If jostled, faulty ignition switches turn off the engine abruptly while the car is in motion, disabling the air bags.
When an airbag is defective or fails to properly deploy, the results can be devastating. Common injuries include: Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, facial fractures, eye injuries, burn injuries and sometimes death.
Previously, any claims prior to 2009 were unable to proceed, however, a recent ruling by the Supreme Court now allows for those injured by a defective GM ignition switch and airbag to bring a lawsuit forward.
If you were involved in a serious collision where the airbag should have deployed but did not, you may have a legal claim. Recalled vehicles include: Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Saturn.
