100 families file death claims with General Motors

A defect affected 2.6 million GM cars

NEW YORK (CNN) – Families are seeking money from General Motors after losing loved ones in car accidents. A consultant in charge of GM’s compensation fund says the auto maker has received 100 death claims following its massive recall.

GM has pledged to pay victims injured or killed as a result of a defect affecting 2.6 million cars. It can cause the vehicle to shut off unexpectedly, disabling airbags.

Officials have admitted that the company made mistakes, leading to a decade-long delay in issuing a recall for the affected vehicles. The company has also received 184 injury claims.

Victims and their families have until December 31st to file a claim with general motors.
