Ceiling and Roof Collapses

Pursuing Accountability After Roof And Ceiling Collapses

Property owners have a responsibility to keep their property reasonably safe for others who are entitled to be there. They are also required to repair unsafe conditions that they are aware of within a reasonable amount of time. If the hazardous condition is not cured and someone is injured as a result, the property owner can be financially responsible for injuries caused by their negligence — this is known as premises liability.

Has Water Damage Caused The Ceiling Or Roof To Collapse?

All buildings sustain normal wear and tear. However, when a property owner fails to repair a leak in the roof or pipe, or fails to correct other problems, such as termite damage, it can cause ceiling material to weaken and cave in — leaving those inside vulnerable to serious injuries. At Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, our Newark personal injury attorneys hold property owners and other responsible parties accountable for their negligence.

Extensive Experience In Ceiling Collapse Cases

At Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, we frequently handle roof collapse and ceiling collapse cases that involve apartment buildings, single family homes that are being rented, hotels and other rental units. Our Newark ceiling fall attorneys thoroughly investigate negligence that may have contributed to the vulnerability of the structure and ultimately to your injuries. Such negligence could include:

  • Failure to correct a leak or water problem in the bathroom of a rental unit
  • Failure to tend to heavy accumulations of snow on the roof
  • Failure to fix a window that could not completely close (leaving the indoors susceptible to outdoor elements)
  • Failure to repair or replace broken or damaged ceiling tiles

We also evaluate other sources of potential liability, such as a poorly designed roof structure, negligent construction or other improper repairs. Our experienced Newark attorneys can identify if a negligent building engineer, repair company or other party should also be held accountable for the roof leak, ceiling fall or roof collapse.

Because every case is different, the best advice can be provided if you call our Newark lawyers toll free at 973-609-5693. You will speak with an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney at no cost and no obligation to you. We can answer many questions right on the phone and, if you like, schedule a free in-person consultation at your convenience.

Has Your Landlord Failed To Respond To Your Repair Concerns?

Many people who have been injured in a ceiling collapse accident have actually brought their concerns about water problems or other defects to their landlord’s attention — only to have their concerns ignored. If you have suffered contusions, neck or back injuries, a head injury, or any other serious injury as a result of falling ceiling tiles, fiberglass, drywall, plaster or other ceiling debris, you deserve justice.
