Episode Details:

Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame inductee Robert Mongeluzzi of Saltz Mongeluzzi & Bendesky shares how he successfully represented the families of nine customers and employees who were killed or seriously injured in the collapse of a Salvation Army Thrift Store in Philadelphia on June 5, 2013. Nearly two weeks before the collapse of an unsupported four-story brick masonry structure onto the one-story store, Salvation Army officials were warned about the risks posed to the Thrift Store due to ongoing demolition of neighboring properties. The Salvation Army chose to ignore the warnings and failed to notify customers or employees of the danger, resulting in seven fatalities and numerous injuries. After a high-profile 15-week trial, Robert Mongeluzzi convinced the Philadelphia jury that this was no accident, securing a liability verdict, with 75% of the liability for the customers assigned to the Salvation Army and the liability for the employees divided among property owner Richard Basciano, the architect and other parties. Following the liability verdict, Robert Mongeluzzi settled the case for $227 million in the damages phase.
