Another completely preventable tragedy occurred near the FIU campus in Miami today when a concrete pedestrian bridge collapsed killing several people and injuring many others.  Officers and emergency personnel are working hard to treat the individuals still trapped in the debris and to clear the devastating scene.  This is not the first time that a heavy structure in Miami has claimed the lives of helpless and innocent students and citizens.  But with greater care and enhanced oversight, let’s strive to make it the last.

According to news reports, this walkway was built and designed by Munilla Construction Management in partnership with FIGG Bridge Engineers.  Florida bridge engineers, designers and construction companies such as these have a legal duty to carefully perform calculations, prepare plans and designs and build bridges according to exacting industry standards so that the structures are safe.  Clearly, one or more of the bridge engineers, designers or construction companies involved in erecting this pedestrian walkway failed to discharge this important duty.  Today’s events demonstrate that these types of failures can be catastrophic.

As experienced attorneys in bridge collapse and structural defect cases, we know what it takes to hold companies accountable for their negligent actions and omissions.   Our lawyers have been representing victims harmed by engineers and construction companies for more than 25 years.

Charles-KinseyThe circumstances surrounding the shooting of a North Miami resident, Charles Kinsey, by local police officers shine a brighter light on the divided discussion about race and law enforcement currently sweeping the nation.  Mr. Kinsey, a behavioral therapist, was helping one of his autistic patients in the roadway in North Miami, Florida.  When police responded to a 911 call about an armed suicidal man in the neighborhood, they instructed the men to remain still.  While lying on the ground, unarmed and hands outstretched into the air, a police officer reportedly shot Kinsey three times in the leg.  Incredibly, Kinsey was then handcuffed while he bled from his wounds in the street.  Kinsey is currently recovering at an area hospital.

Disney Gator AttackCommentators in the media pointed out that “no one would reasonably expect that a man-made beach and lake” would be infested with deadly gators. True for visitors. Not true for Disney!

The Grand Floridian Disney resort knew full well that there were gators in their man-made lake.  Yet, shockingly, they did nothing to warn their unsuspecting guests. Incredibly, Disney not only failed to tell patrons of this known and very real danger but did not even post any warnings about gators being in this body of water. In fact, instead of warning guests, by creating this beach area, they lured parents and their children toward life threatening harm.

On Tuesday, June 14th, 2016, Disney’s callous indifference to the safety of the families whose dollars they so willing devour caused the death of a precious child.
