Kathryn Interviews Jonathan Mooney, NY Times Best-Selling Author of “Normal Sucks”
Episode #5772
December 19th, 2018
In June 2013, the roof of a Philadelphia Salvation Army thrift store collapsed, killing six people and injuring 13 in one day. As frantic family members searched for loved ones and the city responded with horror, one question emerged from the rubble - who was responsible for this tragedy? Andrew Stern shares his personal experience as the attorney for Mariya Plekan, a Ukrainian immigrant who was buried for 13 hours crushed under layers of debris, and lost half her body whose medical bills were projected at $50 million. Currently a partner at Kline & Specter, Stern specializes in malpractice and other substantial personal injury cases. In 2017 he won the largest recovery in Pennsylvania history for one of the victims of the Salvation Army building collapse.
