CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (March 31, 2014 ) — Thomas J. Henry, a personal injury firm handling numerous GM recall injury and death cases, is asking for the public’s help in their nationwide GM recall investigation. The firm has launched a national media campaign-utilizing television, radio, web, and social media to gather information about the recent recall of 2.6 million Chevy, Saturn, and Pontiac 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.
Thomas J. Henry is representing a number of individuals who were injured and the families of those who lost loved ones in accidents involving the recalled vehicles. The firm has been investigating the issue aggressively, and has filed a number of lawsuits against General Motors and its CEO, Mary Barra.
“As the investigation continues, I have been shocked and horrified at what I have found,” lead attorney Thomas J. Henry stated. “But my fear is that the information we have uncovered is just the tip of the iceberg. For us to get the full picture, we need the public’s help.”
The firm is asking all Americans affected by the GM recall to tell their story in the hopes that the information uncovered will help convince a judge to force GM to issue the “Park It Now” order and get the recalled vehicles off the road. After GM refused to voluntarily issue the Park It Now order, the firm filed an Emergency Motion in federal court to force the issue. Arguments will be heard before Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos in Federal District Court for the Southern District of Texas on April 4, 2014. Thomas J. Henry hopes to collect the recall stories of any American affected prior to the hearing.
“We are asking any American affected by the GM recall to tell their story,” Thomas J. Henry stated. “We want to talk to vehicle owners, former GM employees, mechanics, auto dealership employees…anyone who came in contact with these vehicles. Their stories will help us show how dangerous these vehicles are. They will help us get the cars off the road and save lives.”
The firm has emphasized they will protect the identity of anyone who comes forward with information.
“We will respect your confidentiality. We will speak with your attorney, if you have one. The only goal is to get to the truth, and make sure no more lives are needlessly lost as a result of these defective, unsafe, vehicles,” Thomas J. Henry stated.
