General Motors is reporting that they are responsible for at least twenty-three deaths and sixteen serious injuries for accidents that involved defective ignition switches. Ken Feinberg, the "compensation expert" hired by GM to figure out whose claims were acceptable updated the total and posted it on the internet on yesterday.
Feinberg told reporters that, since August, he has received at least 153 wrongful death claims and that only 23 of them are legitimate. The total last week was twenty-one. And of the at least 714 personal injury claims, only 16 people have received any type of compensation thus far.
