GM Crash Victim Compensation Plan Announced
Jun 30, 2014 - 11:45 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
General Motors will pay out millions in compensation to victims and their families of crashes related to faulty ignition switches.

Kenneth Feinberg, the independent administrator GM tasked with handling compensation claims, announced the company’s plan and spoke to the families of crash victims today. The Detroit automaker is setting aside an uncapped compensation fund to pay claims to affected families.

To date, General Motors links 13 deaths and 54 crashes to defective ignition switches that are behind the recall of 2.6 million vehicles. The switches might slip from the “on” position into accessory or off, disabling the airbags. GM will pay out $1 million to the families of crash victims that died in an affected General Motors vehicle. Additionally, the company will pay $300,000 per surviving spouse, $300,000 per surviving dependent and an additional sum for calculated economic loss.

GM is also building three tiers into its compensation structure. The first is for death, the second for catastrophic injuries including permanent brain damage and paralysis and this third is for less serious injuries.

GM has received roughly 3,500 claims, many of which Feinberg said are without substantial evidence. As an example, Feinberg said a 25-year-old victim with two children and an annual income of $75,000 who died in a crash would merit a claim of $5.1 million.

Watch a Sinkhole in Baltimore Swallow an Entire Row of Cars. It Gets Scary at 1:14 !
May 05, 2014 - 10:42 AM - by AutoGuide.com
We're not going to lie, this one starts a little slow, but by the end you'll have shivers running down your spine.

What you see in the video from the onset is only the very start of this sinkhole that eventually grows to swallow an entire line of cars, and a whole lot of additional real estate in residential Baltimore.

It's also a serious lesson in just how dangerous sinkholes can be. Keep watching the build-up until around 1:14 and the rest just becomes terrifying.

WATCH & WEEP... Can you imagine if this was your car?
