Debbie Cazan will moderate the panel “Lessons Learned: The FIU Pedestrian Bridge Collapse” at the Forum on Construction Law 2022 Fall Meeting hosted in-person by the American Bar Association.

On March 15, 2018, a 175-foot section of a pedestrian bridge under construction at the Florida International University collapsed on an active roadway, killing six people and injuring ten. In this session we’ll examine the unique insurance issues raised by this event, discuss the role of the peer reviewer for the project, and hear a forensic analysis of the causes of this collapse, with a focus on identifying “lessons learned” that construction lawyers can apply and implement with their own clients.

Attendees will experience hearing from forum leaders about what they “wish they knew then and what they know now” about substantive law, procedure, and business development. They will learn about industry experience with design-build project delivery and gaining insights about achieving positive outcomes for all members of the project team. Attendees will also gain key insights from experts on climate change about its potential impact on the construction industry and learning how to help clients get ready to meet these new challenges.
