Collapsed Ceiling

December 26, 2017

Often times, apartment ceilings can collapse because of leaky pipes that weaken the ceiling or because of the negligent inspection, maintenance and repairs made by the building owner or management company.  If you are injured because of a ceiling collapse,  the owner and/or the managing agent may be held accountable for those injuries because they have an obligation to ensure that their premises are safe and free from potential health or safety hazards. 

 

In these types of cases, it will be necessary to establish that their has been notice of the dangerous condition, or the owner or its agent knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to make appropriate repairs, or the owner and/or the managing agent created or worsened the condition.   

 

At Avanzino & Moreno, we conduct an immediate investigation into the accident and gather the evidence necessary to  hold the culpable party accountable for the damages they caused.  You may be entitled to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, property damages and pain and suffering.   If the building is owned by the New York City Housing Authority, Avanzino & Moreno will file a Notice of Claim to preserve your rights.

 

If you have been injured because of a collapsed ceiling, do not hesitate to obtain a consultation with Avanzino & Moreno, P.C.  All consultations are free and we are here to help you to protect your rights.
