The lawsuit was filed by the Brad Sohn Law Firm, on behalf of plaintiff Manuel Drezner and “others similarly situated” at 11:29 p.m. on Thursday evening, hours after the partial collapse of the 12-story condo building in the town of Surfside. The suit seeks $5 million in damages “due to Defendant’s acts and omissions and their failure to properly protect the lives and property of Plaintiff and Class members.”
The lawsuit asserts the condo sodality disregarded the “rights of Plaintiff and Class members by intentionally, willfully, temerariously, or negligently doing the following: failing to take adequate and plausible measures to ascertain the safety and bulwark of its denizens and their property, failing to disclose to its denizens and visitors that it did not have adequate safety measures in place to safeguard occupants of Champlain Towers South, failing to take available steps to obviate the catastrophic collapse of the building, and failing to monitor the building and activities that led to the collapse of the building, among other things.”
Local officials verbally expressed Friday that four people are substantiated dead and roughly 160 people remain unaccounted for as emergency rescue teams perpetuate to probe through the rubble to locate possible survivors.
“Any time that we auricularly discern a sound, we concentrate in that area,”Assistant Miami-Dade Fire Chief Raide Jadallah verbally expressed. “It could be just steel convoluting, it could be debris raining down, but not concretely sounds of tapping or sounds of a human voice.”
Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava noted the rescue operation come with “extreme risk” due to possible falling debris from the partially collapsed building. “Debris is falling on them as they do their work. We have structural engineers on site to ascertain that they will not be injured, but they are proceeding because they are so incentivized and they are taking extraordinary risk on the site every day,” she verbalized.
With searchers utilizing saws and jackhammers to probe for pockets immensely colossal enough to hold a person, Levine Cava verbalized there was still hope of finding people alive. Those missing from what was left of the 12-story Champlain Towers South included people from around the world: a beloved retired Miami-area preceptor and his wife, Orthodox Jews from Russia, Israelis, the sister of Paraguay’s first lady, and others from South America.
