Building Collapse in Myrtle Beach
When most people envision a building collapse, they think about an entire building crumbling before their eyes, like the Florida condo collapse that made national headlines back in 2021. However, a building collapse in Myrtle Beach doesn’t always involve a full building collapse. Many of them are partial collapses, such as deck collapses and staircase collapses. Yet even a partial collapse can cause significant property damage, injury, pain, and suffering for accident victims.
Although they are relatively rare, building collapses occur even though many existing building and safety codes are in place, locally and nationally. Usually, the structural failures behind either a partial or complete building collapse are preventable, caused by negligence, error, or greed. Therefore, under South Carolina law, accident victims are eligible to seek compensation for damages and injuries.
