A spe­cial edu­ca­tion teacher has filed a law­suit against five com­pa­nies involved in the con­struc­tion of the River­walk Res­i­dences in Fort Laud­erdale after suf­fer­ing severe head and facial injuries dur­ing a crane collapse.

The inci­dent, which occurred on April 4th, result­ed in the death of a con­struc­tion work­er and left Gem­ma­lyn Castil­lo, the teacher, with a trau­mat­ic brain injury.

The law­suit alleges that the com­pa­nies, includ­ing Kast Con­struc­tion and Max­im Crane Works, act­ed with “reck­less dis­re­gard” for human life and safety. 

The legal action seeks more than $50 mil­lion in dam­ages and claims the defen­dants failed to inspect the crane prop­er­ly and cre­ate a safe­ty plan to reroute traf­fic while it was being assembled.

The crane col­lapse is cur­rent­ly under inves­ti­ga­tion by the Occu­pa­tion­al Safe­ty and Health Admin­is­tra­tion. As the case unfolds, Castil­lo’s attor­neys assert that the com­pa­nies involved had an oblig­a­tion to ensure their con­struc­tion activ­i­ties did­n’t pose a dan­ger to the gen­er­al public.
