Number of deaths associated with GM cars' defect continues to rise; GM CEO says it is no surprise
As you probably know by now, GM initially admitted to knowing of 13 deaths related to the faulty ignition switch in many of its cars. At some point, that number rose to 16, and more recently it was reported that the GM compensation fund has already paid compensation for 19 death claims. At least 125 death claims have been filed, according to AboutLawsuits. GM's CEO recently admitted it is no surprise the number is higher than initially expected and that it is likely the number will continue to rise.
