Ceiling Collapse

Did you suffer an injury when a ceiling crashed down on you? Have you or someone you love been hurt by a collapsed ceiling? Each of us, rightly, never expects to be struck by a falling ceiling. There are any number of reasons that a ceiling could have collapsed, causing you harm. Often, it’s a result of another party’s negligence. Gratt & Associates can help. If you believe that you or someone you love may have been injured by a collapsed ceiling, it’s worth it to schedule a free case evaluation with us. 

Over the years, we’ve helped clients from all walks of life to recover the compensation they deserved for suffering a ceiling collapse injury. 

What You Should Do If You’re Hurt in a Ceiling Collapse

Check for injuries. Make sure that you and yours are safe from further harm. If you feel any pain whatsoever, receive medical attention. Hopefully, you weren’t injured in any way by the falling ceiling. However, many injuries can be internal, you may be in shock, and so forth. 

Collect evidence. Take pictures and videos. Focus on what will be removed and/or fixed. So, take pictures of the hole in the ceiling, any debris on the ground, and so forth. If there’s something physical that fell from the ceiling (sheetrock, concrete, etc.) save that. It could be very useful evidence. 

Once you’ve done all that, contact an experienced attorney. Here at Gratt & Associates, we’ve helped many who dealt with a collapsed ceiling to receive compensation for everything they’ve had to go through.

What Damages You Can Receive After a Collapsed Ceiling

The injuries suffered during a ceiling collapse can be severe enough to necessitate medical care. We can help you to recover compensation to pay for any medical bills you may now be facing as a result of the injury. This can include physical therapy, medications, doctor’s visits, and much more. 

Unfortunately, after being hurt when the roof falls in on you, you may be unable to return to work or to return to work in your previous capacity. If so, we can help you to recover lost wages both now and in the future. 

These injuries can take a terrible toll on the rest of your life. You very well may be able to receive compensation for your pain, your suffering, if you’ve lost some of your enjoyment of life, and similar damages. 

When you sit with us for a free case evaluation, we’ll let you know what your claim is worth. Then, we’ll do everything in our power to help you.

Who’s Liable When You’re Hurt by a Collapsed Ceiling

There are many reasons to contact experienced attorneys after your ceiling collapses, not the least of which is that we can conduct an investigation to determine who is liable. More often than not, the property owner is liable. They had a duty to maintain the roof, they breached that duty, and you were injured as a result. 

However, it could be that a contractor could be liable for injuries or some other party. We can find the truth and then use it to bolster your case. 

We encourage those injured by a fallen ceiling to reach out sooner vs. later. Among the many reasons for this: In some places, the building owner is the city. If that’s the case, then you have much less time to file a case.
