Victims and relatives of those killed in the collapse of a house in Florida will receive at least $150 million

This amount of compensation will not include possible payments for claims of relatives that have been coming to court since the end of June. All petitions will be collected in one class action, which will be considered by the court separately.

Relatives of the victims and victims of the collapse of an apartment building in Surfside in the vicinity of Miami (Florida) will receive at least $150 million in compensation. This was reported by Fox News with reference to the decision of the Miami-Dade County Court.

According to him, this amount includes $50 million in insurance payments and at least $100 million for the loss of real estate in an already defunct house. “The main concern of the court is always the victims. Their rights will be protected,” the TV channel quotes the words of Judge Michael Hanzman.

It is noted that this amount of compensation will not include possible payments for numerous claims of relatives that have been coming to court since the end of June. All petitions will be collected in one class action, which will be considered by the court separately. A multi-storey residential building in Surfside collapsed on the night of June 24. On the first day, 37 people were rescued from the rubble, but then no survivors were found. On July 7, the authorities decided to stop the rescue operation, now they are looking for the bodies of the victims at the crash site. According to the latest data, 97 people became victims of the collapse.
