The physical and personal tragedy and calamity that’s occurred here is enormous. When we get past this very painful process and it’s appropriate to start talking about liability, what we can figure out pretty quickly is that between the wrongful death actions and the property damage claims, etc., the dollars of loss and the dollars of potential damage will be huge. People who have been injured will be looking for as many possible defendants and insurance companies to be liable, at the end of the day. What’s going to happen, in my opinion and experience, is that anybody who’s quote-unquote touched that building is susceptible and likely to be sued.30 December 2021
