A class action lawsuit has been filed by a resident of the Surfside, Florida, building that collapsed in the early morning of June 24, 2021 against the Champlain Towers South Building Association Inc. Parts of the Champlain Towers South building collapsed with approximately 55 units destroyed. As of today, approximately 150 people were still unaccounted for along with 12 deaths.
The suit claims that the association was informed, had knowledge, or reasonably should have been aware that the building was unsafe leaving residents at risk. Further, the suit states a breach of contract claims for an agreement between the association and condominium owners stating which repairs and maintenance the association would maintain. The cause of the building collapse has still not been determined.
