If you own one of the recalled General Motors vehicles listed and you were injured, you may receive a settlement from the new GM Ignition Compensation Claims Facility within 90 days of completing a claim form. General Motors knew about the ignition problems in 2001, but hid it from the public for over a decade.
This was even after reported deaths and several internal memos about the defective parts. Because of their actions, injuries occurred or people died. If you have been injured, a car accident or truck accident lawyer we recommend can make a huge difference in the recovery you receive.

GM Recall Facts
These GM vehicles have a known ignition problem that causes the car to shift from the run position to the accessory position. This means that the car’s engine, airbags, power steering and power brakes do not work.
You won’t be able to steer your car, stop your car and if you hit something, the air-bags will not deploy. The engine shut off can occur by having a heavy key chain, by touching the keys or hitting a bump in the road.
GM knew about this defect since 2001. GM kept the information secret and because of their actions injuries occurred or people died. The Center for Auto Safety released a study on March 13, 2014 revealing more than 300 deaths in accidents where GM airbags failed in the recalled car models.
