General Motors now has received 2,710 claims for compensation for deaths and injuries caused by faulty ignition switches in its cars. The count was as of January 9, 2015. According to the report from lawyer Kenneth Feinberg, who was administering the compensation program for GM, they received 141 new claims for compensation last week.

Sorted out, the total claims refer to 303 for deaths, 202 for catastrophic injuries and 2,205 for less-serious injuries that required hospitalization. According to Feiberg’s report, the program has determined that 12 more claims were eligible for compensation to 112 from 100.

So far, the compensation program has determined to be eligible for compensation claims for 45 deaths, seven severe injuries and 60 other injuries. On the other hand, 320 claims were deemed ineligible, while 738 were under review.

Likewise, 757 claims lacked sufficient paperwork or evidence while 783 had no documentation at all. GM has allocated an initial $400 million to cover its costs of compensation for claims on behalf of people injured or killed due to the faulty ignition switches in its vehicles.
