As reported by the Detroit Free Press
Eighty deaths have been caused by General Motors’ defective ignition switches, three more than the prior week, according to the weekly update by the compensation fund determining eligibility of victims’ claims. Another 1,246 cases remain under review out of the 4,342 filed since the fund was created last August. About 28% have been deemed ineligible either because there was insufficient documentation or the claimants failed to prove that the ignition switch was the primary cause of someone’s injury or death.
