DETROIT (WKZO) -- The General Motors Ignition Compensation Fund will begin to take claims August 1st. Attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who is administering the fund, made the announcement Monday morning.

The fund will only accept claims from those who have one of the 2.6-million vehicles involved in the recall. The ignition switches in those vehicles could slip out of the "on" position and cut power to the engine. The problem has led to at least 13 deaths and 54 accidents.
