Ceiling Collapses

There are several different factors which may lead to the weakening of a ceiling, making it susceptible to collapsing.  Every premises owner has a legal obligation to maintain their ceilings in a safe condition and in suitable repair so as to protect visitors or the public from any potential harm.  Some factors which may lead to a ceiling collapse include water damage, structural or engineering defects, poor construction materials and improper duct work, just to name a few.

Ceiling collapses can cause the following injuries:

  • Death
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractured bones
  •  Injuries to muscles, nerves, joints, tendons and ligaments

A ceiling collapse accident can have lasting physical and psychological effects.  Trauma to joints and ligaments can result in arthritis and degenerative joint disease.  As a result, ceiling collapse victims may incur added medical expenses through their lifetimes.  Moreover, many victims of ceiling collapse accidents experience post-traumatic stress syndrome, whereby they become apprehensive about walking under ceilings.  Recovering from these life-altering injuries can be both painful, costly and can take a huge toll on a victim and his or her family.  

If you or someone you know has been injured as the result of a collapsed ceiling, it is imperative that you consult an attorney.  Our attorneys, with years of experience litigating personal injury lawsuits involving ceiling collapses, will work diligently to obtain the greatest monetary compensation possible for your injuries.
