GM logs 141 additional faulty ignition-switch claims
So far, 112 of those claims have been approved for compensation, 45 for deaths, seven for severe injuries, and 60 for "other" injuries attributed to the ignition switch defect applicable to ten GM vehicles, the Chevrolet Cobalt being the poster child of the lot. GM has $400 million allotted to paying approved compensation claims, but that is merely an ante; the company will pay whatever the administrator decides is the proper amount in every case, so the final payout could be more or less than $400 million. There are 738 claims still being reviewed.
