Structural Failure/Building Collapse Accidents
Whether a new construction is being built, or whether an existing building is being repaired, structural integrity is a key issue. In cases where new building is being constructed, construction site owners have a responsibility to ensure that the site is safe for workers as workers climb up and down the structure in order to complete it. In cases where an existing structure is being repaired, there is an obligation to ensure that the construction site is safe for visitors and workers. Unfortunately, there are situations in which building collapses in Miami and Florida injure workers and passersby. In many cases, this happens when not enough precaution is taken to ensure that buildings are safe for workers and visitors.
Building collapses usually cause widespread destruction as well as multiple injuries and fatalities. Falling construction materials and a collapsing building can trap victims. The results often include broken bones, internal bleeding, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, and other potentially life-threatening injuries. In these cases, it is important for victims to seek fair compensation for their injuries so that they can replace lost income, pay for medical bills and home care, and recover as fully as possible from their injuries.

Building collapses are usually complex cases, since there may be multiple liable parties involved. The construction company hiring the workers may be partly liable if they did not take proper precautions to secure the structure. Workers may be held partly liable if they ignored instructions about securing a building. In some cases, builders and architects are held liable if the design of the building itself was flawed. In many cases, it requires a personal injury attorney to carefully investigate the claims and injuries resulting from a building collapse or construction site accident in Miami or another community. Personal injury attorneys in Miami and across Florida work with private investigators and accident reconstruction experts, expert witnesses, and other professionals who can help get answers about a construction site or workplace accident in Miami or your community. Speaking with a personal injury attorney is also often a good idea because building collapses tend to result in multiple claimants and multiple liable parties, making these cases quite complex.
