Expect a lot of finger-pointing in what attorneys say will likely be multimillion-dollar litigation arising from Thursday’s bridge collapse at Florida International University.

The 174-foot bridge weighing 950 tons collapsed onto a state road, Southwest Eighth Street, near FIU’s campus in Sweetwater. It crushed several lanes of traffic below, killing at least six people, according to death toll reports released as crews continued rescue and recovery efforts Friday.
