Chevy and GM Recall Lawyers

Ford Recall Lawyer | GM Recall Lawyer | Automobile Defect and Recall Lawyer

In the past 3 years alone, more cars and trucks have been recalled in the United States due to serious manufacturing defects than any other time in history.  Almost all of these defects were known by the automobile manufacturers before the vehicles were placed on the market and many presented significant safety hazards to not only the owners and passengers of the vehicles, but to other drivers on the road as well.

Our Motor Vehicle Recall Lawyers successfully represented thousands of the owners of these dangerous cars and trucks who were seriously injured or killed because the manufactures chose not to issue recalls until they were forced to do so by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

To help reduce the number of future injuries and deaths, we’ve put together a list of the most recent and widespread Motor Vehicle Recalls and Safety Investigations below, along with links to additional information about those defects and how they can affect vehicle owners and their families.

Recent Motor Vehicle Safety Investigations and Recalls

GM Truck Fires

Our GM Truck Fire Lawyers were recently retained by the family of a Louisiana man who was killed when the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado he was riding in as a passenger suddenly burst into flames. The driver of that vehicle was also killed in the blaze.

According to witnesses, flames appeared underneath the vehicle as the driver revved the engine in an attempt to climb out of a ditch. Within a matter of seconds, the entire cabin of the vehicle was consumed with flames.

Unfortunately, this does not appear to be an isolated occurrence. In fact, the website consumeraffairs.com lists 52 GM Truck Fire Complaints of Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra models spontaneously going up in flames. Owners who have been present when their GM trucks caught fire reported smelling or seeing smoke shortly before the vehicle went up in flames.

National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration Investigating Sudden and Total Brake Failure in 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150 Pickup Trucks

The investigation is due to a defective Master Braking Cylinder that has been reported to spontaneously fail, resulting in total loss of braking ability.

Ford Recalls over 225,000 Year 2013 to 2014 Ford F-150 Pickup Trucks as a Result of Sudden and Complete Brake Loss

Nissan Recalls almost 800,000 Vehicles over Defective Wiring Harnesses and Hood Latches

In January 2015 Nissan announced one of its largest-ever recalls, pulling back 768,000 SUVs over concerns relating to fire risks and dangerous hood latches. The fire risk stems from an exposed wiring harness connector that is prone to short circuiting when exposed to moisture from rain or snow. The hood latch recall affects both Nissan and Infiniti models and puts drivers at serious risk of causing life-threatening accidents.

I hired Zehl when I was severely injured doing a Plug and Abandonment job offshore. I'm glad I did, they were incredible. They walked me through every step of the case, made sure that I got to the best doctors, and were always there for me when I was having trouble paying bills when the case was pending. I always felt that I was in good hands and well taken care of, which relieved a lot of my stress and helped put me at ease. Eric and the team at Zehl and Associates represented my best interests, I highly recommend them.

I was hesitant to file a lawsuit when I was injured at work, because I didn't know what to expect and my company kept telling me that "they were going to take care of me." But the medical bills kept piling up, I wasn't able to work and make money to support my family. Eric Allen and the staff at Zehl put me at ease about the process, kept me to up date about what was going on, and devoted all their resources to making sure that I had the money I needed to pay all my medical expenses and take care of myself and my family. I can honestly say that working with Eric, Ryan and the Zehl team was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Thank you.

After I was injured at a chemical plant, I needed time to recover from my injuries and a lawyer who could stand up for me and my family against my company. Ryan Zehl was recommended to me from a coworker. Ryan worked hard to prepare my case and kept me and my family in the loop through the entire process. At the end they were able to get me a settlement that was much more than we had expected. I’d recommend Ryan and the team at Zehl to anyone who needs an injury lawyer who’s aggressive, honest and dedicated to protecting their clients.

Thanks to the hard work from Ryan and his team, a dangerous product that could have hurt thousands of people is now off the street. Even though I suffered from the lack of safety checks from this product, I am happy to have “taken the bullet”, to keep other people safe. Special thanks to Tommy Servos, who kept me informed through out the whole trial and helped me get a record recovery!

I grew up in Texas and went to work on an oil rig just like my dad did. It was a point of pride to follow in the same career path as my father, but no one warned me about the constant pending danger of being on the rig. My team and I are professionals that follow the rules and keep safety as priority number 1. But there are some factors to this job that can’t be controlled. Just like the BP Deep Water Horizon oil spill, my rig suffered an explosion due to the lack of up keep and maintenance from our superiors. Ryan Zehl came to our aid to get the compensation my crew and I needed. Having a Houston personal injury attorney from back home represent us was truly a personal and eye opening experience. He truly cared about us and thanks to him, I can recover with my family and the safety precautions on the rig have never been tighter.

Husband was killed at a refinery to the lack of safety checks performed by the company he worked for. When I found out he was gone I was so devastated and scared for our family I wasn’t sure what the next step would be. At first I thought his company would do the right thing and take care of us. But was I wrong. They tried to say we could only recover worker’s comp and had no claim against the company. I hired Ryan because of their experience with plant and refinery accident cases. I was so impressed at how professional and caring Ryan and his entire team were. They would call to check on me and my kids and always made sure I had money to pay bills and get presents for my kids on there birthdays and at Christmas. I don’t know where we’d be without there help. Because of Ryan and his team, I was able to pay off the house, put a trust together for my kids to make sure they’re able to pay for college, and never have to worry about having enough money to take care of myself and the kids again. We are so grateful for everything they did for us. Thank you.

I came to Zehl Law Firm after I was injured in a car accident. They made me feel comfortable and explained things so I understood what to expect. Along with excellent communication. They were always quick to respond and update me on everything. Kelvin Hayes did a great job with my case and I would be happy to refer him to anyone looking for a auto injury lawyer.
