A St. Louis jury awarded $5.2 million last month in a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit filed over a fatal tent collapse at a sports bar near Busch Stadium. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that jurors awarded $2.4 million to the family of 58-year-old Alfred Goodman of Waterloo, Ill., who was killed when wind gusts of up to 50 mph knocked over a tent beside Kilroy’s Sports Bar on April 28, 2012. The jury also awarded $2.8 million to be divided among seven others injured in the collapse, who joined Goodman’s family in the lawsuit. Negligence was alleged on the part of bar owners. The defense asserted that “the storm came on so suddenly there was no time to warn patrons.” The jurors apparently felt there were early storm warnings that were ignored and that there had been adequate time for a warning.

A positive manner
Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
