Category Archives: Wrongful Death
OPINION: I think this incident will become known as the “negligence lawsuit for the colossally stupid”.
Civil engineers build a bridge over a highway in Florida and designed it to withstand Category 5 hurricanes and last for 100 years. So, once it was done they decided to test it to make sure it was good to go, and sadly, here is where all those expensive engineering degrees (and every vestige of common sense) abandoned them.
I’m not an engineer, but even I know that tests only have 2 outcomes: pass or fail, right? So these idiots decided it would be a good idea to run a stress test which, as the name implies, applies extreme additional stress to the bridge to see if it can withstand it. Simple enough idea, right? Only problem is that none of the degreed civil engineers running the test thought to consider the obvious: in a 50/50, pass/fail scenario, there is only a 50% chance of passing the test.
So they completely ignored that truth and ran the test anyway, with 6 lanes of traffic, vehicles and people clogging the area under the bridge.
Short story; the test failed, the bridge collapsed and all of the people and vehicles under the bridge were crushed.
Gross negligence/wrongful death lawsuits all around? And hopefully none of the jagoffs who ran the test will ever work in civil engineering again.
