According to the New York Times, Detroit-based automaker General Motors has begun the process of settling hundreds of wrongful death and personal injury claims linked to defective ignition switches; this forced the recall of over 2.6 million small compact cars manufactured by GM.
The ignition defect can shut off a moving car, disabling airbags as well as steering and braking capabilities. This flaw has proven to be a very large financial burden and public relations disaster for GM. All together, GM faces claims that add up to billions of dollars.
According to General Motors spokesman Greg Martin, “We’ve acknowledged that we have civic and legal obligations as they relate to injuries in accidents involving the recalled cars.”

Recently, Hach & Rose, LLP, shared critical information regarding the benefits of fusion surgery. This surgery, which is often conducted on the spine, neck, or ankle, is often necessary to relieving people of day-to-day pains or providing them with greater mobility and function.
Furthermore, because of the serious injuries that victims of accidents such as construction accidents, car accidents, or slip and falls sustain, fusion surgeries are often critical. Unfortunately, these surgeries can be quite expensive, making it difficult for a person to cover the full cost.
Fortunately, people who need these surgeries as a result of an injury caused by another person’s negligence can often get the costs of the surgery covered through a personal injury claim, something our lawyers at Hach & Rose, LLP, have had great success with. To learn more about the benefits of fusion surgeries and Hach & Rose, LLP’s past results, click here or call us at (212) 779-0057.
