Thomas J. Henry Injury Attorneys Prepares to Petition NHTSA to Add "Park It" Language to GM Recall

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to a federal judge's decision to decline a "Park It Now" motion that would ground all recalled GM vehicles until repairs are made, a number of GM recall injury victims and their families are preparing to petition the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in an attempt to get the defective cars off the road.

Thomas J. Henry Injury Attorneys, the personal injury firm leading the nation in GM recall injury and death litigation, filed an Emergency Motion for the "Park It Now" order in Federal Court on March 28, 2014. Arguments were heard on April 4 and the judge's decision was announced on April 17. In her decision, Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos recognized the Silvas' right to proceed through NHTSA to pursue the "Park It Now" order.

"The court is of the opinion that NHTSA is far better equipped than this Court to address the broad and complex issues of automotive safety and the regulation of automotive companies in connection with a nationwide recall."

-Excerpt from Judge's Decision in Case 2:14-cv-00089

Injured Clients and Victims' Families Won't Give Up on "Park it Now" Order

"We were disappointed with the court's decision in this matter," lead attorney, Thomas J. Henry stated. "We have hundreds of clients who experienced this fatal defect firsthand, some who were injured in accidents after the recall notice was issued. We have also been hired by numerous families who lost loved ones and individuals who were seriously injured since the 'Park It' litigation began."

"We stand firmly behind our clients' desire to get these vehicles off the road until they are made safe to drive. We intend to persevere by any means, including the NHTSA petition."

"I have seen the death, injury, and heartache caused by GM's complete disregard for safety. Even Congress and the Senate of the United States understand the dangers these recalled vehicles pose to the public. When I see seriously injured people, families who lost loved ones... a paralyzed child, I know we must pursue all avenues of relief – from our courts to our administrative and safety regulation agencies and Congress."

The "Park it Now" order and other ongoing litigation with GM relates to the recall of 2.2 million Chevy, Pontiac, and Saturn vehicles with defective ignitions. The ignition switches on these vehicles can fail, causing loss of vehicle power, loss of power steering, and non-deployment of airbags. The recalled vehicles have been linked to 303 deaths and numerous other accidents and injuries.
