General Motors pays millions in settlements

WASHINGTON, DC – Despite recalling about 8-million vehicles, General Motors has had its best June sales since 2007.

It looks like they will be spending some of those record earnings by shelling out big bucks, at least $1 million in settlement payments to families of those killed as a result of faulty ignition switches.

In order to get the cash, families have to file a claim between August 1 and December 31, 2014, and have to prove the ignition was ‘proximate cause’ of death. Another catch, the air bags must not have been deployed.

No word on how someone is supposed to prove that, but the thought alone could drive some families mad.
