$101 Million Tropical Parking Garage Collapse Case Settlement

Tropicana parking garageStewart J. Eisenberg and Daniel J. Sherry Jr.of Eisenberg Rothweiler Winkler Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C. represented individuals who were catastrophically injured when a parking garage collapsed underneath their feet.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. On October 30, 2003, an under-construction parking garage at the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey collapsed killing five people and seriously injuring another 30. It was later determined that the building was built without the necessary steel required to connect the floors to the walls.

After nearly four years of litigation and preparation, including 250 depositions, and inspection of nearly 1.5 million documents, a settlement totaling $101 million was reached between the victims and the defendants, which is believed to be the largest construction accident settlement in U.S. history.

Although no amount of money can ever completely erase the pain and hardship experienced by our clients and their families, it is my hope that this settlement will go a long way in helping them to heal, said Eisenberg. He added that as part of the settlement, the defendants will pay the clients' future medical expenses, as well as their entire workers compensation liens.
