  • Causes of Ceiling Collapses

    There are numerous reasons why ceilings collapse, but negligence is the common denominator in just about all of them. Some examples include:

    • Failure to inspect, maintain, and repair the ceiling
    • Glossing over signs of possible structural damage such as brown spots
    • Hiring unqualified or incompetent labor to construct a building
    • Neglecting to fix leaky pipes
    • Failing to address infestations of insects and rats, which eat and weaken structures
    • Painting over a problem area rather than fixing it
    • Structural issues due to contractors’ cutting corners and using inadequate materials
  • Determining Fault

    After such a structural failure, it’s important that you hire a qualified ceiling collapse lawyer to investigate who was at fault for your injury. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the collapse, any number of people may have been at fault, including the property owner, building manager, construction company, or building contractor.

    For example, suppose you rent an apartment and the ceiling collapsed due to a lack of maintenance. Chances are, your landlord will be liable for your injuries and damages. That’s because it’s their job to periodically inspect the building, identify problems, and make necessary repairs. Provided they were maintaining the property as they should, they would have been aware of potential dangers to you and taken steps to address them.

    Or suppose a construction crew failed to mark off a dangerous building and the ceiling collapsed while you were inside. In this case, the crew may be negligent and liable for your injuries. No matter the scenario, a ceiling collapse attorney at Morgan & Morgan can help you determine who was at fault and hold them accountable.

  • What to Do After a Ceiling Collapse

    • Take note of times when you have complained to management about a leak, crack, or other concern regarding the ceiling.
