If you or someone you know has been injured while in a vehicle recently recalled by GM, listen to what Attorney Steve Barnes says should be your next step. Also listen to GM CEO's apology.

Mary Barra became CEO of GM in January, when she became the first woman to lead a major automaker. She had served as head of product development at GM since 2011, after the recalled vehicles were built.

In February GM recalled about 1.6 million vehicles worldwide, for an ignition switch failure, in which the ignition can switch to off while the car is running, disabling the power steering and air bags in the Chevrolet Cobalt and HHR, Pontiac G5 and Solstice and the Saturn Ion and Sky, model years 2003 through 2007.

GM has said the problem is tied to at least 12 deaths.

On Monday, 1.5 million additional GM vehicles were recalled for problems with the air bags in some crossover SUVs, the brakes of a Cadillac sedan and the instrument panel of a full-size van.

"The bottom line is we will be better because of this tragic situation if we seize the opportunity. And I believe we will do just that,"

- Mary Barra, GM CEO
