Taylor Bridge Fire Attorney Eyeing WSDOT
An attorney for Taylor Bridge Fire victims may soon file a lawsuit against the state of Washington.
An assistant for attorney Michael Helgren says Helgren plans on filing a lawsuit against the state -- Helgren claims a Department of Transportation inspector failed to require certain fire suppression practices to be carried out at the time of the fire.
The lawsuit, which has about 60 plaintiffs, is currently suing the Conway Construction and Rainier Steel, claiming its workers did not take proper steps to prevent a fire started by their work.
The Department of Natural Resources is currently looking into the specific cause of the Taylor Bridge Fire.
