General Motors issues a recall of 778,000 cars

GM recently recalled 780,000 Chevy Cobalt and Pontiac G5 vehicles made between 2005 and 2007.

The company says that a problem with the engine switch can cause vehicle engines to shut off unexpectedly and may disable the airbags in some cases.

CNN reports that this manufacturing defect has been linked to at least 22 crashes, including six deaths involving airbags that failed to deploy.

GM has attempted to minimize the seriousness of these crashes by stating that they occurred at a high speeds and probably would have been fatal regardless of the airbag deployment.

Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP handles product defect cases across Southern California. Evidence plays an enormous role in these type of cases so it is important to preserve as much of a defective product as possible to prevent tampering.

Our product liability litigation team begins each case by acting early to gain access to the evidence in a defective automobile case so that it can be reviewed by our team of experts. We utilize a secured evidence warehouse to ensure that evidence remains preserved throughout the course of a case.
