GM acknowledges 117 death claims linked to defective switch

American automaker General Motors (GM) currently has approved a total of 117 death claims linked to faulty ignition switches in some of their vehicles, MLive reported on June 22.

Reports said GM has approved three additional death claims in the past week. GM established a funding program to give financial assistance to those who were injured in accidents caused by faulty ignition starters. GM initially approved 19 death claims in September of last year, and the number continued to increase since last month. GM records showed that there were a total of 4,342 claims of either injuries or deaths linked to the problem. GM issued a recall of 2.2 million vehicles in the U.S. due to a faulty ignition switch that may turn the power off, preventing airbags from being released.
