Wrongful Death Settlement for $28 Million

A wrongful death lawsuit has been settled for more than $28 million against 18 defendants. The lawsuit was settled by the family of Milena Del Valle who was crushed to death when a section of the ceiling inside the tunnel of Boston’s Big Dig collapsed on her car in 2006. Some 26 tons of concrete came crashing down onto the car Del Valle was riding in with her husband when ceiling panels came loose and fell. The couple's three adult children will receive more than half the settlement money and her husband will receive the balance. Taking shortcuts was the primary cause for the accident investigators found.
