The faulty ignition switch problem from General Motors has been in news for a long time now and the recall count is more than 17 million cars this year. Daniel Hollaert Jr. lost control of his 2006 Chevy Cobalt when his car crashed head-on into a school bus full of children.

Mindy Homer, Daniel’s mom, said, “He was not an inexperienced driver. He’s been driving since he was 16-years-old. We have always been a little curious to what took place and I guess maybe now this is what the answer is.”
There may have been the involvement of GM defective switch that may have turned the car off with no power, no steering and no brakes as well as airbag failure. The vehicle accident involved head-on collision into the oncoming school bus and Hollaert was killed.
Almost assuredly there exists the potential for this type of electronic defect to affect the vehicle in other ways. Mr. Tracy of the TRACY Firm says that he has already received information from a consumer that Cadillac spontaneously fired the airbags when a key was inserted into the ignition. There are numerous lawsuits filed against GM for defective switch.
Vehicle Safety Attorney, E. Todd Tracy has tried 124 cases against GMC, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Honda, Mitsubishi, Ferrari, TRW, Key Safety, Allied Signal, Breed, Takata, JCI, and Dorel Juvenile Group.
Mr. Tracy strongly suggests that if you have been injured or had a loved one killed in a GM vehicle, and you think it could be related to the GM recall, to contact his law firm and discuss it with one of the attorneys or staff members.
