In 2014, General Motors (GM) issued one of the largest recalls that have ever recorded by recalling over 30 million vehicles worldwide, 26.5 million of which were from the United States. The recalls were issued for a wide variety of problems associated with the vehicles; the most deadly of which were faulty ignition switches that could cause the vehicles to turn off while still in motion. This ignition switch problem led to hundreds of injuries and at least 17 deaths.
When you purchase or drive a vehicle, you have the right to expect that it was properly manufactured and is safe for you and your family. Unfortunately, the GM recall has brought to light the fact that vehicles are not made as securely or as safely as expected. If you or a family member suffered because of any of the recalls against GM vehicles, you may have rights for financial compensation through a lawsuit.

Seeking Compensation for Your Recalled Vehicle
In addition to helping you seek financial restitution for your suffering, injuries, or even the wrongful death of a family member caused by recalled GM vehicles, our attorney can help you seek recompense for the lost resale value of your GM vehicle. With GM's name being associated with the largest recall in history, the GM brand has depreciated further than it normally would have. This means that your vehicle has lost some of its possibility for resale, which is something our lawyer can add to your lawsuit.
Mr. Jeffress has experience with defective product lawsuits and even spent several years filing cases against dangerous drug companies that were producing injurious prescriptions. He can use this experience to help you seek compensation for your suffering, medical bills, insurance claims, and the lost brand value of your vehicles.
