Building Collapse Attorney in New York City

Fighting for Injured Construction Workers

Ongoing construction is a common thing as buildings get older and need various services. In addition to this, new construction on tall buildings is something that is booming in New York City. With these new ventures comes the danger of potential building collapses. At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., we know that the hazards of a building collapse are real concerns, not just for the individuals in the building, but also for the construction workers and any pedestrians who may be in the vicinity.

Our New York City construction accident attorneys know the various causes of building collapses and we know how to represent individuals who have been injured as a result. It is a tragedy anytime a situation like this occurs. Whether you were injured or you lost a loved one due to a collapsed building, taking legal action is important to help you recover compensation from any negligent party.

Determining Who is At Fault in Building Collapse Accidents

In 2015 alone, New York City witnessed numerous building collapses. One of these events involved a construction worker who died after an eight-story building partially collapsed. When buildings collapse and individuals sustain serious injuries, it is important to determine what caused the event. There are numerous things that can cause a building to collapse and, oftentimes, these accidents can be a result of failed safety precautions or lack of supervision.

Common causes of building collapses include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad structural design – When new construction begins, they go off of set blueprints. If the structural design has faults in it, the end result can be a building collapse.
  • Oversized loads – If there is a heavy machine at the top of the structure or a certain aspect places too much weight on the building with not enough support, it can collapse under the pressure.
  • Foundation failure – Building collapses don’t always begin at the top of the building. When the foundation fails, it can allow the building to shift, adding too much pressure on one side, collapsing the entire building.
