GM: Not all victims of ignition switch problems eligible for compensation story image

DETROIT (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Not all victims of ignition switch related problems with a GM vehicle are eligible for a payout from the company's compensation fund.

General Motors created this fund for families of those who died or were injured in one of the 2.6 million vehicles recalled in February.

But now, money from the fund is not being offered to victims of the later June recalls of 11.6 million more vehicles.

GM says the recalls involve two different problems--one was the ignition switch itself, while the second was with the key.

Victims not eligible for the compensation fund can still sue General Motors.
