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

The hood latch recall affects both Nissan and Infiniti models and puts drivers at serious risk of causing life-threatening accidents.

I wanted to express my outmost gratitude and appreciation to the Zehl&Associates law firm for the excellent representation in my accident case in December 2016; even though it was a difficult case I could not have been more pleased with how they handled everything. They are very knowledgeable and clearly the top in their field. I would highly recommend them. Thanks Zehl&Associates.

I don’t think I can ever be thankful enough for Lamar DeLong. I’m a single mom, on my way home from work two weeks after I started my new job and two weeks after graduating from college, I was in a horrible car accident. My car was totaled and I was really badly hurt. Lamar took my case and didn’t stop until I was going to be fully taken care of. I now will have little worries about taking the time off of work to get the back and knee surgery I desperately need to be able to function normally. I’m 26, I’m a single parent and Lamar kept that in mind. Zehl&Associates really took care of me. Especially being in completely different cities. A thank you won’t be enough for this firm treating me like family and making sure I was taken care of. Thank you Lamar and all the staff involved in my case.

Ryan Zehl is the best, very nice, helpful, and compassionate. His firm works very hard to help you! I hired them because my brother was killed on a work site, the firm's track record, and they seemed to really care about their clients and cases. Thank you all at Zehl & Associates for your help.

Theres not enough stars to rate the true quality on here! Everything I've heard about lawyers went out the window when Eric took time on Father's day of all days to contact me back and help assist me with a settlement. I was in desperate need of legal advice & guidance and running out of time. Eric was quick, efficient, HONEST, and did more than beyond more to make sure I was legally protected & being treated fairly. I was at my giving up point on everything until that first conversation with Eric. Zehl Law definitely breaks the mold on lawyers. He was more interested in protecting me than trying to take money from me. Which is a rare thing to find in any industry or just people in general, which has definitely been my case involving everything else in my life. But of all people, a lawyer restored my faith in humanity itself. Thank you for that. Thank you for everything! You've been more than amazing!!!

Zehl has been amazing and extremely helpful to our family since my husband was incolved in a plant expolosion in 2015. Everyone from the owner of the firm, Ryan, to each and everyone that has answered the phone has always been more than willing to help in anyway possible. The staff always checked on our family to be sure we had all we needed and showed to really care! I would recommend Zehl and associates to anyone looking for a lawyer to fight a good fight and make sure all clients’ needs are met at the same time!
