In the hours following the collapse of the Florida International University pedestrian bridge in Miami, one of the attorneys at Schlesinger Law Offices made a telling observation – bridges built during the Roman Empire still stand today, while the bridge at FUI didn’t last a week.
Our attorney made this observation because not only is he an experienced personal injury, wrongful death, and construction accident lawyer, he is also a Florida licensed general contractor who has built office buildings, roadways, and bridges.
While officials from Florida International University and the National Transportation Safety Board investigate the cause of the bridge collapse that claimed the lives of six people and injured several more, and other law firms hire expert witnesses to help them begin to understand bridge construction, Schlesinger Law Offices is a step ahead and already connecting information from news reports to establish timelines and likely causes.
