Building Collapse in Birmingham

Building Collapse in Birmingham

A building collapse in Birmingham, whether partial or total, is usually caused by some structural failure and often results in catastrophic consequences, including significant property damage, severe injury, and even death.

While they are relatively rare, building collapses can occur. When they do, they are usually preventable, especially in a day and age where many existing building codes are in place to help prevent these catastrophes. According to studies, construction and maintenance issues are the primary causes of building collapse in the United States, and often, greed, negligence, and error are behind such deficiencies.

If you or someone you care about has been injured in a building collapse in Birmingham, Morgan & Morgan may be able to help.

  • Common Causes of a Building Collapse

    Some of the most common causes of building collapse in Birmingham include:

    • Structural Failures: Inadequate construction, defective or insufficient materials, and poor maintenance can lead to structural failures, which are a leading cause of building collapses.
    • Foundation Problems: Uneven settling, shifting, erosion, or design and construction errors can all result in a building’s partial or total collapse.
    • Explosions: Explosions from industrial accidents, gas leaks, or any other source can cause a building to collapse.
    • Fire: The heat from a fire can weaken a building’s structural components and cause a collapse.
    • Design Issues: A poorly designed building may have called for using inadequate materials, which can lead to load distribution problems, causing a collapse.
    • Overloading: Whether from overcrowding, improper storage, or excessive weight, buildings can collapse when overloaded.
    • Deterioration: Wear and tear, poor maintenance, and corrosion can all cause a building to deteriorate with age, increasing the likelihood of a collapse.
    • Poor Construction: Whether it is the use of subpar materials, insufficient quality control, or failure to meet building codes and standards, shoddy construction can compromise the structural integrity of a building.
    • Vibration: Whether caused by nearby construction or heavy machinery onsite, vibrations can weaken a building’s structural integrity over time.
