BOSTON - The lawyer overseeing the Boston Marathon bombings victims' fund says the families of three people who died could each receive more than $1 million.
Kenneth Feinberg says he plans to unveil a tentative compensation proposal on Monday in advance of meetings with victims.
Feinberg, the Massachusetts native who oversaw the 9/11 compensation fund, tells The Boston Globe victims who lost more than one limb in the April 15 attack would receive a similar amount, while those who lost a single limb would probably receive close to $1 million each.
People who suffered other physical injuries would receive smaller amounts based on the extent of their injuries and the length of their hospital stay.
The One Fund had more than $28 million as of Friday.
