Perhaps the worst nightmare of any owner, contractor or designer is the structural failure or collapse of a building, structure or crane. The aftermath of a collapse involves state, local and federal regulatory agencies and sometimes criminal investigations. In addition, insurers find policies invoked, and third parties often have substantial claims for damage to adjoining property. Attorneys in the Construction and Infrastructure Practice Group have handled numerous cases involving this type of disaster. Our knowledge of the industry and relationships across the design and construction community allow us to provide clients with accurate, informed advice on how to manage the legal and public sides of a catastrophic event.
