General Motors Ignition Switch Failures Result in Failure of Airbags to Deploy
Brown & Crouppen is investigating injuries that happened in accidents involving the following models:
· 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt
· 2007 Pontiac G5
· 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR SUV
· 2006-2007 Pontiac Solstice
· 2007 Saturn Sky
· 2003-2007 Saturn Ion
In February, General Motors recalled 1.6 million vehicles. Investigations indicate that when the ignition switch is jostled, it can disable the airbags and turn off the engine, even if the car is travelling at a high rate of speed.
There have been hundreds of consumer complaints. GM has been investigated by both Congress and the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration because of the company’s tardiness to declare a recall. GM knew about problems with the ignition switches as early as 2001.
