David Perecman Relieved No One Was Hurt In Parking Structure Collapse Caused By Construction

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 30, 2014

An underground parking structure in Century City, Los Angeles partially collapsed due to a construction accident, according to ABC News(7.25.14). The weight of construction material was reported to be the cause of the collapse.

In many cases of structural collapses, the weight of the materials and-or equipment exceeds the load capacity of the structure. It is a nightmare scenario for any builder or construction subcontractor, said [Attorney at Law David Perecman of The Perecman Firm.

Construction crews were working on a landscaping project at the time of the accident.

The tons of dirt and lava rock being used for the project were kept on the top of the parking structure. The heavy weight of the stored material was too much for the structural integrity of the parking garage, said ABC News. This contributed to the collapse.

Five cars were crushed and two apartment buildings needed to be evacuated. No injuries or deaths were reported, ABC News said.

This was most likely a frightening experience for everyone in the vicinity of the accident, said Perecman. Thankfully no one was hurt. The difference between no injuries and serious injuries may have been hours or even minutes of time. Close calls like this should be wake-up call for workers and employers everywhere.

New York construction workers injured when a building, roof or wall collapses unexpectedly may be entitled to seek money beyond New York workers’ compensation. In many cases of workplace injury, a third-party liability claim for additional compensation is possible and can be pursued.

Flood Law Group Announces Continuation of Investigation into GM Ignition Recall

General Motors approved ignition switches that did not meet company specifications have already been linked to 13 deaths and Flood Law Group continues to update information regarding the situation on its website.

According to USA Today (Owners of recalled GM cars face long repair waits, 5/8/14), a deeper review as a result of the ignition switch recall has turned up 4 million more cars with significant problems . The largest recall recently announced by GM was as a result of a product defect in the ignition switches of many small cars. The defect caused the switches to slip from the run position to accessory, causing engine shutdowns as well as disabling power-assisted steering and air bags. According to an article published by Reuters (Delphi told panel GM approved ignition switches below specifications, 3/30/14), officials of Delphi Automotive told U.S. congressional investigators that GM knew about the problem since 2001 and may have concealed information when it first discovered it.

General Motors has a legal obligation to protect the safety of consumers, said Christopher Brown, Director of Communications for Flood Law Group. We believe it should be held accountable for its failure to fix the ignition switch when it first became aware of the problem.

Vehicles impacted by the recall include: All 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR, 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit (Canada), 2006-2007 Pontiac Solstice and 2007 Saturn Sky vehicles.
