Fighting for Your Rights When the Unthinkable Happens
Property owners and construction site managers are legally obligated to ensure their buildings are safe. When they fail in this obligation and neglect to follow the countless rules and regulations that govern buildings in North Carolina, tragic accidents can occur.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to a structure collapse, you have the right to pursue full compensation for damages and seek justice against the parties responsible. Victims of these tragic incidents have the legal right to recover compensation for their injuries and the long-term impact the injuries have on their lives.
How Buildings Collapse
It may seem impossible for a modern building to collapse without the influence of a catastrophic event like an earthquake. If you’ve been injured in a building collapse, you’re probably wondering how this happened to you.
The sad truth is that several known factors can cause a building to collapse – all of which are preventable if the property owners, construction site managers, and product manufacturers act responsibly. Some of the common causes of building collapses are:
- Defective building materials
- Engineering or design flaws
- Foundation defects
- Inadequate or poor maintenance of the building
- Preventable fire damage
- Water damage
- Violating structural or building design specifications
