The Help You Need After a Building Collapse
As a construction worker, you can carefully follow all safety precautions and procedures. You can wear the required protective gear and report safety issues as soon as you spot them. But what can protect you from an unstable floor under your feet or an unstable roof over your head?

We truly care for each of our clients, and we treat each case as our most important case. Our approach helps us get our clients the results they deserve.

Fires, Building Explosions and Collapses
Building collapses and other structural failures aren’t common, but they are also not as rare as many think. Our team has handled dozens of cases resulting from unsafe construction sites and can help you when you are injured or have lost a loved one due to:
- A building collapse/structural failure of a commercial or residential building
- The collapse of a roof or floor
- Collapsing scaffolding
- Explosions, fires and other large-scale accidents fully beyond your control
Workers injured in a collapse are possibly eligible for compensation from not one, but two sources. The first is workers’ compensation. The second is a third-party claim.
Third-party claims can be filed against owners, subcontractors, contractors and parties other than your employer that may be liable for your injuries. It makes sense to work with an experienced attorney to investigate your third-party claim options as the compensation from a third-party claim almost always exceeds workers’ compensation benefits.
