DALLAS, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- An investigation into the actions of leading automaker General Motors has been enacted by the Justice Department, regarding how they have handled vehicle safety problems over the last decade.
Justice Dept. Is Said to Look at G.M. Actions on Safety Flaws
"The investigation is the latest in a widening series of threats to G.M. over its handling of faulty ignition switches in its Chevrolet Cobalt sedan and other cars that the company says are linked to 31 accidents and 13 deaths."

Federal regulators say they have received numerous complaints in the past 11 years pertaining to G.M. vehicles that suddenly shut off while drivers were operating them, yielding fatal results in multiple cases.
Auto Regulators Dismissed Defect Tied to 13 Deaths
"Federal safety regulators received more than 260 complaints over the last 11 years about General Motors vehicles that suddenly turned off while being driven, but they declined to investigate the problem, which G.M. now says is linked to 13 deaths and requires the recall of more than 1.6 million cars worldwide."

According to the Dallas car wreck attorneys of the Eberstein & Witherite law firm, a manufacturer failing to take consumer complaints seriously in these types of cases can yield disastrous results. In the case of General Motors, after failing to address ongoing complaints, some of which reported moving vehicles shutting down suddenly at high speeds, early on, the company is now forced to deal with unexpected legal ramifications that may soon include injury lawsuits.
Say the 1800 CAR WRECK team, automakers are responsible when their negligence leads to drivers becoming injured in accidents. The law allows injured victims in these cases to seek compensation for medical expenses, and other damages they incur as a result. The law firm of Eberstein & Witherite can answer questions for those who have been injured in an accident that may have been linked to the G.M. motor vehicle recall. Individuals can contact the firm today by calling 1800 CAR WRECK for a free injury case assessment. The helpline is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
