Liability for Building Collapses

Victims of building collapses may be entitled to compensation for the injuries and damages that resulted due to the building collapse under a legal theory of premises liability.   Under the theory of premises liability, property owners and property managers are liable for accidents on their property if he or she failed to provide safe conditions or failed to comply with applicable codes or regulations.  If the building collapse occurred on construction site while the victim was working, the victim will likely be entitled to a worker’s compensation claim, as well.

If the building collapse resulted in fatalities, the victims’ families may be entitled to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit to recover for damages, such as loss of income, grief and suffering, and loss of companionship.
