Claims process begins for GM ignition switch defect victims
General Motors’ settlement program in regards to the deadly auto defect unacknowledged for a decade began taking claims on August 1, The New York Times reported.
The compensation fund’s deputy administrator Camille Biros said the first day of claims filing was slow, noting that only 10 claims were submitted, but she predicted that the claims would come pouring in over the next couple of weeks. Claims administrator Kenneth Feinberg said lawyers who represent a large number of plaintiffs told him they will file the claims all together.
For clients who are not eligible for the compensation package, personal injury attorneys have begun filing lawsuits against the company.
