Aggressive Representation Following A Roof Collapse
Many collapses can be traced to gradual structural failure. Cracks appear, water damage is indicated by stains, or chunks of drywall simply crumble away. Unfortunately, a ceiling collapse is often a sudden onset — the danger, appearing out of nowhere. Due to the sudden nature of a roof collapse, victims have little chance to protect themselves. Traumatic brain injuries, crush injuries, amputation and even death can follow a roof or ceiling collapse.
What Factors Can Lead To A Roof Or Ceiling Collapse?
With the changing seasons in New York, numerous factors can lead to devastating structural accidents. These factors include:
- Failure to remove excess snow and ice, which could lead to a buildup of weight
- High winds
- Excess water from storms
- Water buildup from leaking pipes
- Building code violations
- Building fires
- Failure to maintain property
