Jury Awards $99 Million in Deaths of Ironworkers

A jury ordered two companies to pay $99 million to the widows of three ironworkers killed when a crane collapsed at the construction site of Milwaukee’s new baseball stadium.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries of America is responsible for paying all but $157,500 of the award.

The jury found Mitsubishi and Lampson International responsible for the July 1999 accident that killed the ironworkers.

Mitsubishi was building the stadium’s retractable roof, and had leased a crane from Lampson.
