Attorney Andrew Yaffa, partner of Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, guest-starred on Prime Time Crime, a true crime podcast, in its coverage of the devastating partial collapse of Champlain Towers South in Surfside, Florida. As rescuers continue to recover victims, our South Florida attorney team has devoted its time to uncovering the root cause of the collapse.
At the time of the podcast’s recording, the death count was at 18 persons, with 145 persons unaccounted for; per CNBC, the death count has now grown and recovery efforts have replaced the original rescue mission. This horrifying collapse has, without a doubt, brought tragedy to Surfside, Miami-Dade County, and the nation as a whole.
So how and why did the 12-story condo collapse happen? And is there anything we can do to prevent another tragedy in its likeness?
According to Attorney Yaffa, little is known regarding exactly what caused the collapse of Champlain Towers South. As he told Katrina Daniel, host of Prime Time Crime, anyone who claims there was a smoking gun is lying. Further investigation into the condo collapse is desperately needed.
“As more time goes on and as we uncover—no pun intended—more evidence, there’s going to be a lot of people exposed,” Attorney Yaffa said in Prime Time Crime. “And there’s a lot of liability to go around, unfortunately.”
While our attorney team is still reeling from the news of the collapse, we refuse to stand by silently. In fact, we have already filed one lawsuit over this tragedy.
“I see the worst of the worst, and I do whatever I can do to bring my clients some peace,” Attorney Yaffa explained.
