  • Common Causes of Building Collapse in Brooklyn

    Buildings can collapse for a variety of reasons, including failing structural integrity. The internal load-bearing supports can fail. Sometimes, this is due to age or a poor design. Some of the other reasons the structure may not be able to support the load include,

    • Excessive construction loading: When the current structure is attempting to withstand a higher load-bearing capacity than it was designed for. This can cause the load-bearing materials and structures to fail, resulting in the collapse of the structure.
    • Weak temporary materials: Some materials may be temporary or have not yet reached their ultimate strength, such as drying concrete walls or temporary steel and wooden connections.
    • Instability: Weak foundations and similar structural instability can be overlooked at the beginning of a construction project and cause major issues later on.
    • Lack of maintenance: As buildings age, they can become gradually weaker. Property owners should ensure buildings are regularly maintained to prevent major accidents from occurring.
  • Steps to Take if You’re Injured in a Building Collapse

    If you’re injured in a building collapse in Brooklyn, the first step is to seek immediate medical attention. Your health is the most important concern. Next, you want to contact your insurance provider and a personal injury attorney. If the building is owned or managed by your employer, they will also need to be informed of the accident and your injuries.

    Contacting your insurance company will help get the ball rolling on your compensation claim, but don’t accept any settlement offers. Instead, let an attorney from Morgan & Morgan handle the negotiations.
