A company that operates the Royal Park Bridge in West Palm Beach has agreed to pay $8.27 million to settle a lawsuit filed by the family of a 79-year-old woman who fell to her death while crossing the span in February. Attorney Lance Ivey, who negotiated the settlement with Florida Drawbridges on behalf of the family of retired journalist Carol Wright, called it 'one of the largest, if not the largest, settlements for a case of this kind.'
