GM Eligible Death Claims Will Rise: Feinberg

CNBC reports that Kenneth Feinberg, the attorney who is overseeing the General Motors compensation fund for victims in crashes linked to defective ignition switches, has linked 19 deaths to the faulty switches and expects the death toll to go higher. In the five weeks the fund has been operating, it has received 125 death claims and 320 injury claims. Feinberg has found 31 claims eligible for compensation. “Already there are more deaths than GM said from day one,” Feinberg said.
