Ceiling Collapse Injuries: Who Is to Blame?
With a premises liability claim involving a ceiling collapse, liability may lie with one or more of various parties. We will need to carefully investigate the circumstances that led to the collapse and may need to work with experts in construction, engineering, and other applicable fields to determine exactly what occurred and who should have prevented it.
The following parties may be responsible for collapsed ceilings:
- Upstairs neighbors
- Property owners
- Building managers
- Current or previous contractors
- Construction crews
