Automotive Defect Cases - Cadillac Recall Lawsuits

In addition to all of the troubles that General Motors has regarding the ignition switch defect, GM has recalled the 2013 Cadillac SRX due to the acceleration issue. The Cadillac SRX is a crossover vehicle. The defect reported has to do with delays in the acceleration. The defect relates to a faulty ignition because of a computer glitch that controls the transmission. The National Highway Safety Administration (NHSA) said in a recent statement that, “there may be a three to four second lag in acceleration due to the transmission.”

General Motors said that it is recalling more than 50,000 2013 Cadillac SRX cars. Even though the Cadillac SRX has this acceleration defect, there have been no reports of crashes, collisions or other incidences related to the acceleration delay or faulty ignition.

Further, General Motors states that the problem with the Cadillac SRX occurs when the automatic transmission shifts from the 1st to 2nd gear and when the vehicle brakes. The defect increases the risk of a collision or crash. With the addition of this recall, the 2013 Cadillac SRX, General Motors has recalled vehicles that number in the millions.

“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.

“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.

“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
