On Monday, GM announced that 19 deaths have been caused by faulty ignition switches in a great number of their vehicles. If you have been injured by a defective General Motors vehicle included in the GM recall in the Pittsburgh area, our firm can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Contact the Romanow Law Group at 412-642-9100 today to get started on your GM settlement. Because GM has been aware of the ignition problem since at least 2002, they are responsible for exposing you to danger.
GM’s failure to warn you about the danger put you at risk. The problem stems from a faulty ignition switch, which can shift from “run” to “accessory,” causing the engine and electrical system to stop. This results in failure of the air-bags, brakes and power steering systems. Reports have indicated that simply nudging your keys with your knee while driving could cause this failure.

GM Recall Sparks Lawsuits and Government Scrutiny
As a result of the recall due to faulty ignition switches, a number of lawsuits have been filed and it is anticipated this trend will continue.
The Federal Government has intensely scrutinized the actions of GM, and has called its CEO to testify before congress on multiple occasions. There have been questions as to whether GM failed to act in order to save money. This story could be another classic example of companies putting profits before people.
