The victims and families affected by the February 2014 General Motors ignition switch recall can breathe a little easier, as the deadline to file a claim with the victim compensation program administered by attorney Kenneth Feinberg has been extended.

Autoblog reports the deadline is now January 31, 2015, per a recommendation to GM by Feinberg. The move would allow both parties to be able to reach “every eligible person impacted” by the switch at the center of the February 2014 recall.

Since the window for accepting claims opened in August, a total of 2,105 were filed through last Friday, including 217 fatality, 128 severe injury and 1,760 less-severe injury claims. Among them, 72 claims were found eligible for compensation (33 fatality, 5 severe injury, 34 less-severe), while 292 claims (27 fatality, 30 severe injury, 235 less-severe) were under review.
