Your building collapse claim
Under premises liability law, victims of a building collapse may be eligible for compensation from the property owner, engineer or architect for failing to maintain a safe building with a sound structure. Dangerous conditions and breaches of duty of care by property owners are not acceptable and our premises liability attorneys will investigate all of your claims, injuries and damages suffered, including reviewing medical records and bills, and offer a free evaluation of your case. If you are a construction worker who was injured during a building collapse, you may also be also entitled to a workers’ compensation claim as well.
In building collapse accident cases, our experienced premises liability and personal injury attorneys examine the architectural and engineering standards of the building and help you through the complex legal issues that surround these types of premises liability claims. We will thoroughly investigate the building collapse accident with our team of trained professionals.
