Engineer Liability - Moore, et al. vs. Board of Commissioners for Orleans Parish Levee District, et al
A driver injured in single car accident on a bridge filed suit for damages caused by unreasonable dangerous conditions on bridge, including slippery metal grating and unprotected light supports. At trial, plaintiffs argued that the client engineering company failed to warn the bridge owner about dangerous conditions not in compliance with then-current roadway design standards. Mr. Bergeron defeated a multi-million dollar award by persuading jurors to assign 90% of the fault to a previously settled party.
