Ceiling Collapse Accidents Protecting Your Rights Throughout Florida

Miami Ceiling Collapse Attorney

Ceiling Collapse Dangers in Florida

Sudden ceiling collapses are a real danger for Miami residents. Ceiling collapses can happen in any home, residence, or building when the wrong circumstances align. If the building didn’t have a strong structure or foundation to begin with, if a property owner failed to maintain the building and fix problems such as leaky pipes, or if no one inspected the support beams for rot in the last decade, the ceiling could eventually collapse.

You may be in more danger of a ceiling collapse incident if you live in an old or dilapidated building, or if you work in construction. Structural collapses in construction can occur due to unsafe scaffolds, poorly trained workers, low-quality materials, and defective products. If you suffered injuries in a ceiling collapse on the job, speak to a skilled attorney before accepting a workers’ compensation settlement.

If you suffered injuries or a loved one died in a Miami ceiling collapse accident, contact our law firm today. We have experience with collapsing structures and other premises liability claims.

A ceiling collapse accident can cause:

  • severe head and brain injuries
  • spinal cord injuries
  • bone fractures
  • contusions
  • lacerations
  • exposure to harmful substances (e.g., asbestos, which is present in many older buildings)

The cause of a ceiling collapse accident may be:

  • poor construction
  • lack of building maintenance
  • compromised structural integrity
  • an unsafe construction zone

Who Is Liable?

Property owners will be liable for most Miami ceiling collapse accidents. It is a property owner’s responsibility to inspect, repair, and maintain all elements of a property, from floor to ceiling. Failure to inspect a property regularly, detect unsafe conditions, and take steps to repair hazards before they cause injuries is negligence. If this negligence causes someone’s injuries or death, the property owner will be liable for damages.

Why You Need a Lawyer

An attorney from our law firm can help you investigate the accident, detect signs or proof of negligence, build a case against the property owner (and/or another party), and obtain compensation for your losses. While you focus on healing from your injuries and spending time with family, we’ll concentrate on winning your case.
