DETROIT (WKZO) -- The man who oversaw the U.S. government’s September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, will guide General Motors’s potentially bumpy journey through lawsuits filed as a result of accidents related to faulty ignition switches.

No stranger to sizeable projects, Kenneth Feinberg’s law firm, Feinberg Rozen, was paid 850-thousand dollars a month by BP to oversee the 20-billion dollars in claims to compensate a half-million people affected by the Deepwater Horizon explosion in 2010.

GM leaders are taking meetings with Feinberg and will determine in the coming weeks the scope of his responsibilities as well as his compensation.
