Because Natasha Weigel was riding in the back seat of the Cobalt when it crashed, she has not been officially listed as one of 13 victims killed in a recalled car. As it now stands, the compensation program, which will begin accepting claims in August, is only available to families of front seat riders in fatal crashes tied to the ignition switch issue.

But after releasing the results of its internal investigation, GM said the number of accidents and fatalities linked to the ignition switch may be raised pending the review of Ken Feinberg, the attorney in charge of establishing the compensation fund. The Reimers' attorney, Bob Hilliard, had already contacted Feinberg.
"We are not saying the number of eligible parties will be limited to 13," a GM spokesman said. "Mr. Feinberg will review the facts and he alone will determine the final number of eligible individuals. We will make public the number of fatalities and serious physical injuries as ultimately determined by Mr. Feinberg."
