The death toll related to General Motors’ faulty ignition switches is up to at least 124, according to NBC DFW. The number was updated on Monday as a result of a fund that was set up to compensate the victims and their families, which is being administered by attorney Kenneth Feinberg. GM acknowledged that it had known about the ignition problems for over a decade, which is responsible for the deaths of 124 and 269 injuries, as of this week. 84% of the claims submitted, however, have been rejected as ineligible. 319 compensation offers have been made, six of which were rejected. 4,342 claims were made as of the January deadline.
