GM Ignition Switch Cover-Up
Did GM attempt to cover up information about their dangerous and occasionally deadly ignition switch defect? Newly uncovered documents certainly suggest so. This could be incredibly damaging to GM as legal actions against the company for 67 deaths and countless injuries mount.

In testimony, GM claimed an internal investigation found that “incompetence” was the reason these faulty ignition switches were approved. This same incompetence, the company alleged, was responsible for their being slow to initiate a recall. This new evidence seems to suggest that not only did GM know of the dangers, but intentionally and actively sought to keep it from consumers. If found to be true, this would indicate that GM testimony was false.
Companies keeping information from consumers in order to boost profits is nothing new. However, when withheld information allows for injury and death, those same companies must be held liable for their deception and gross disregard for the safety of their customers.
