GM recall may follow similar fate as Toyota

Shortly after the announcement of Toyota’s $1.2 billion settlement to the federal government, another major automaker has recently come under fire for similar causes. General Motors, better known as GM, is currently being investigated for not recalling vehicles due to a faulty ignition switch. The defective switch is believed to have been responsible for 13 deaths, but could even be held liable for as many as 300 others. Montgomery’s Beasley Allen Law Firm plans to investigate the company considering the automaker’s slow response to the ignition switch defects, which were revealed to have been discovered by GM back in 2001.

Despite GM’s compliance with the federal government’s investigation, more than three million GM vehicles are under recall. GM has even gone as far as to offer drivers $500 toward buying or leasing another GM vehicle as part of the mandatory recall. Beasley Allen attorney Mike Andrews spoke with Reuters regarding GM’s recall-related lawsuits, stating GM’s response as “really ridiculous.” “They’ve known about this for years, and their response is $500,” Andrews said.

Jere Beasley, attorney and founding shareholder of Beasley Allen, is in the planning stages of holding GM accountable for the treatment of its customers. Since more information has been made available concerning GM’s reckless behavior, Mr. Beasley confirms that “…now we know that our worst fears really were exactly true.
