Brooklyn, NY Collapsed Wall Accident Attorney
Every construction worker understands that there are certain risks associated with the job. With that said, certain risks are simply unacceptable. Ceilings and walls should not collapse. When ceilings or walls give way, serious injuries or even death can be the result. If you, a family member or other loved one has suffered injuries from the collapse of a wall or a ceiling, you may not be able to work for some period of time, if ever again. In many cases, the collapse of a wall or ceiling can lead to spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries or head injuries or broken bones.
The collapse of a ceiling or a wall can have any number of causes, including:
- Negligent design or construction
- Excess weight on a ceiling
- Failing to erect proper shoring
- Failure to properly maintain a structure
Our lawyers will fully investigate exactly how your injuries were caused, and will fight for full and fair compensation. We are dedicated to helping people get the compensation they need to make the best possible recovery after a serious accident.
In many construction accidents, our investigation will show that the property owner, contractor or some other party violated state or federal regulations. We will work to hold accountable every party responsible for your injuries.
There are strict statutes of limitations in every personal injury or wrongful death claim. Speak with our law firm as soon as possible so we have enough time to investigate and prepare your legal claim.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to a collapsed wall or ceiling, contact the Law Offices of David J. Hernandez & Associates by calling (718) 522-0009.
