Building and Ceiling Collapse
Were You Injured In A Building Collapse?
Buildings are supposedly built to remain safe. Whether it’s our house, a restaurant, our office, or anywhere else, we rely on these structures to shelter us from the elements and remain standing. However, shoddy maintenance, defective construction, and a number of other issues could put the structural integrity at risk. Whether the entire building collapses, or if it’s just a portion, anyone caught in the danger zone could suffer a serious injury like a spinal cord injury, a traumatic brain injury, or even die.
Negligence is almost always responsible for a collapsed building or ceiling, and that negligence caused you to suffer a serious injury you deserve the chance to file a lawsuit to secure compensation to cover any damages or medical bills you may have incurred. Our Phoenix premises liability attorneys at MayesTelles PLLC are ready to work with you to put together a plan of action that best suits your needs. Contact us today to learn what we can do to help.
Common Ways A Building Or Ceiling Can Collapse
A building or ceiling can collapse due to a number of different factors, including:
- Failure to Consider Unexpected Complications: Damage to the building caused by a natural disaster, sabotage, or vandalism, or if the people tasked with keeping the structure well-maintained lack the necessary training and experience, can increase the chance of failure and collapse of a building or ceiling.
- Manufacturing Error: Poor heat treating, improper sizing, poor material selection, poor workmanship, and unstable building geometry can increase the chance of failure and collapse of a building or ceiling.
- Defective Materials: Materials damaged from previous use or poor manufacturing can increase the risk of failure and collapse of a building or ceiling.
- Inability to Support the Load: Materials that cannot support the shape and size of the structure they make up can increase the chance of failure and collapse of a building or ceiling.
- Fatigue or Corrosion: Instability in the material properties, geometry, or design of the building can cause cracks to form and expand at points of stress and can increase the chance of failure and collapse of a building or ceiling.
