Personal Injury Ceiling Collapse

A common type of apartment building accident is a ceiling collapse, whether it starts from peeling and cracking or a water leak. This can lead to a portion of the ceiling collapsing and injuring someone. Even though the tenant may have complained to his super or building management, these types of problems are not always fixed timely. Ceiling collapse injuries include those to the head, neck, shoulder and back or other portions of the body struck by falling plaster and debris from the collapse.

Landlord and or management of a building has a duty to ensure that his or her premises are maintained in a safe manner such that those living in the building are not injured by a ceiling collapse. Depending on the severity of the ceiling collapse, you could end up with very serious injuries that affect the rest of your life and incur a tremendous amount of medical bills.

A tenant who is the victim of a leaking, cracked, water stained, moldy, chipped, sagging, drooping or otherwise defective ceiling in their apartment that later collapses may have a strong lawsuit against the landlord and or management company that maintained the property.
