Bridge Collapse Victims may not be fully compensated for injuries

After the horrific Interstate 35W bridge collapse this summer, families affected by the tragedy are learning the compensation allocated to victims may not be enough. Take, for example, Paula Coulter, whose family was injured as their care tumbled onto the bridge collapse. Paula’s days consist of physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and recreational therapy due to brain damage sustained during the bridge collapse. For this family, with medical bills already toppling $380,000, the $300,000 cap allocated to each individual involved in the crash will not be enough.
