GM to Pay Compensation for 19 Faulty Ignition Switch Deaths

General Motors Co will pay compensation for 19 deaths linked to a faulty ignition switch -- 13 more deaths then what the automaker had previously admitted, according to the lawyer overseeing the process. The company said it has determined that 31 out of 445 claims, including 19 deaths are eligible for compensation. Outside attorney Ken Feinberg is still reviewing remaining claims of death and injury that are related to the faulty ignition switch that caused GM cars to slip out of the "run" position, stall, and to disable the cars' airbags.
