How to Know Whether You Have a Case Against GM

If you or a loved one was severely injured, or if you lost a family member, in an accident involving a vehicle included in the February, 2014 recall by General Motors, you could be entitled to a settlement from GM. [See a list of those vehicles.]

Victims of accidents involving these vehicles have a potential case against GM, because GM knew about a faulty ignition switch, but failed to warn consumers, recall the affected vehicles, or replace these faulty switches until nearly a decade after the problem was discovered. [Read more about the history of these cases.]

Now that GM is admitting these vehicles have a serious problem, and they are trying to protect consumers, many accidents involving the affected cars are being re-reviewed in light of these developments. Those injured, or the loved ones of those who were killed, could be entitled to compensation from GM. [Click here to read about a recent lawsuit settlement.]
