Minnesota Thanks The Special Masters Panel For Their Hard Work In Settling The I-35W Bridge Claims
Too much pain, not enough money: How three lawyers divided state funds to I-35W bridge collapse victims
How do you put a dollar figure on someone's pain? That was the job of the three lawyers who allotted compensation to victims of the Interstate 35W bridge collapse.
The three personal-injury lawyers, chosen as the special masters panel, divided $36.6 million in state funds among 179 claims. In the more than four months they spent hearing the details of the victims' problems, Chairwoman Susan Holden and panel members Mike Tewksbury and Steven Kirsch were profoundly moved by the victims' stories.
