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.

I never dreamed how much this would mean to me
I received another check today, much to my surprise. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I never dreamed how much this would mean to me in my golden years, as I have had hearing problems for years and needed to update my hearing aids, but with a limited income, found that was impossible. I now have the best hearing aids that I have ever had, thanks to you fighting so hard on my behalf.
