If you or a loved one has been injured in a tunnel collapse, whether as a worker on a construction project or as a motorist or passenger in a vehicle using the tunnel, your injuries can be devastating. When tunnels collapse, tons of earth and rock can fall on innocent victims. If you have been hurt in a tunnel collapse, you want an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your interests.

At Blackman Legal Group, we have focused our practice onpersonal injury claims since 1976. We combine knowledge and experience with a commitment to meticulously prepare your case, carefully investigating every detail. We will fully explain the law and legal process, as well as your options and likelihood of success. As a result, our attorneys often settle personal injury claims at or above insurance policy limits, and we have obtained numerous settlements in excess of $1 million.

We offer a free consultation. To set up an appointment, contact Blackman Legal Group by e-mail or call our office at 415-585-5200 (toll-free at 866-692-8126).


A tunnel collapse can be caused by the negligence or carelessness of engineers, architects, construction contractors or workers. OSHA standards may be neglected or intentionally ignored. A collapse can also occur in an older, existing tunnel, where years of use and pressure have made conditions unsafe, but safety inspections have not been properly conducted.

When you hire us to help you recover full and fair compensation for your injuries, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident, so that we can identify all potentially responsible parties. We will aggressively seek damages for all your losses, including wages and income, medical expenses, the costs of rehabilitation or physical therapy, loss of companionship or consortium, and physical pain and suffering.

Our attorneys handle all types of injury claims arising out of a tunnel collapse, from soft-tissue injuries, such as contusions, lacerations, sprains or muscle injury, to serious and catastrophic loss, including traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, paralysis, broken bones, and amputation or loss of limb. We will also represent you in an accidental or wrongful death claim related to a tunnel collapse.

We represent personal injury victims on a contingent fee basis. We won’t charge you attorney fees unless we are able to recover monetary damages for your injuries.
