GM ignition switch death count rises to 84
Compared to last week, that's an increase of four death claims, according to Automotive News, plus nine more injuries, and the grisly process is still far from over. Facility administrator Kenneth Feinberg and his team of attorneys have 1,136 reports to process, including 73 alleged fatalities, compared to over 1,200 remaining last week.
The GM Ignition Compensation Claims Resolution Facility began accepting documents on August 1, 2014, and extended its initial deadline for reports postmarked by January 31, 2014. In that time, it received 4,342 claims, including 475 allegations for deaths caused by the faulty part.
