Tunnel Collapse Injury Attorneys

Representing All of Montgomery County

Experiencing an accident that causes personal injury can be traumatic. The cost of medical care related to injuries is often staggering, and getting your life back on track may be impossible when you have lost the ability to participate in activities that you once enjoyed.

Tunnel collapses can injure people who are parked in a parking structure, driving through a long road that is enclosed or walking under a bridge. While these accidents may seem like they are not the fault of anyone, there may be structural issues related to negligence that put the manufacturer at fault.

Who is responsible for a collapsed tunnel?

Architects, engineers and construction working involved with the designing and building of a tunnel are all responsible for complying with safety standards. Some planners or builders ignore OSHA standards to save time and money, and personal injuries that result from this negligence warrant compensation.

Even if a bridge was initially constructed properly, wear and damage that occurs over time can cause safety issues. Inspectors are responsible for detecting any damage that could make tunnel collapses possible, and inspectors who fail to properly complete an evaluation of a tunnel structure may be liable for injuries sustained during a tunnel collapse.

Depending on the severity of the collapse and the location of a person during a tunnel collapse, injuries can range from contusions to brain injury. Death may even occur as a result of injuries sustained during a collapse, and families who are left behind after a tragic accident are entitled to compensation that will help them pay for their loved one's final expenses.
