General Motors to Offer Compensation for Deaths Related to Ignition Switch
Death and injury claims attributed to 2.6 million recalled General Motors Co. vehicles with faulty ignition switches are still being reviewed.
According to a lawyer overseeing the process, the automaker will provide compensation for 19 deaths linked to the defect. These offers are expected to be high in order to persuade beneficiaries from filing lawsuits against GM.
Initially, GM only recognized 13 deaths, but the victims’ fund deputy administrator noted the company expanded this number as a result of further evidence coming to light. In all, 125 death claims and 320 injury claims have been submitted to the fund for review.
