Survivor of FIU Bridge Collapse Tells His Story at GRYC

Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen’s co-founder Stuart Grossman and trial attorney Alex Arteaga-Gomez have filed a negligence lawsuit on behalf of Richard Humble, a survivor of the Florida International University (FIU) pedestrian bridge collapse that took place on a busy thoroughfare, Southwest 8th Street, in Miami.

Now Humble is speaking about his experience. On April 2, 2018, Humble and Grossman held a press conference at the firm’s offices, where Grossman discussed the suit and Richie told his story.

The suit is against a number of the private parties involved in designing, constructing, installing and inspecting the failed bridge. Public entities, such as FIU and the Florida Department of Transportation, both of which were intimately involved in the construction project, cannot be sued until a six-month notice period expires.

“Each entity involved in this process has an obligation to [build the bridge] within the appropriate inspection, construction and engineering standards,” Grossman said. “They can finger point all they want, but I’m going to take each one of these parties and analyze how they behaved and interacted with each other.”
