A Total of $1.2 Billion has been Agreed Upon as Compensation for Building Owners and Their Families
A $1.2 billion compensation has been accepted by a judge in Florida for condo owners and the relatives of those who perished in the collapse of a Surfside residential tower last year. One day before the anniversary of the accident that claimed the lives of 98 individuals, it was completed.
On Thursday, Judge Michael Hanzman in a Miami courtroom referred to it as a “amazing” outcome. It was a year after the June 24, 2021, blaze that a settlement was reached for the victims, the relatives of the deceased, multiple defendants, and their insurance companies, all of whom had been harmed.
It was the most difficult case Hanzman had ever seen in his 35-year legal career, and he commended all of the attorneys who worked on it. According to the judge, this prevents the need for a trial that may have gone on for a decade or more. As he put it, “These people and their families would have had to suffer through it and experience this pain time and time again.”
