Building Collapse Accidents in Fort Lauderdale

Fighting for the Benefits You & Your Loved Ones Deserve

Whether you are putting up a new building or renovating an old one, structural integrity is a key issue. Every necessary precaution must be taken to ensure the safety of all employees working on the project. A building collapse, which is one of the most horrific accidents that can occur on a construction site, may result in extremely serious injuries or death.

If you have suffered a serious injury, or a loved one has been killed in a building collapse, get in contact with our Fort Lauderdale workers’ compensation attorneys at Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A. today. We have the experience, skill, and commitment to help you secure the workers' compensation benefits you need to recover from your injuries.

Workers' Comp Benefits Typically Cover:

  • Medical treatment and future medical care
  • Lost work wages / lost future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional injuries
  • Decreased quality of life

What Causes A Building To Collapse During Construction?

Buildings should not collapse during construction, but when there is negligence, they are more prone to disaster. Factors that could cause a building collapse include:

  • Negligent building design: In some instances, a building collapse can be traced to the blueprint stage.
  • Foundation defects: Issues with cement or other materials in the foundation could put the entire building at a high risk for collapse. Even on the most solid ground, the foundation must be strong enough to hold the load.
  • Low-quality building materials: Wrong materials used to assemble the structure may result in weaknesses that go undetected until it is too late.
  • Too much weight on a structure: Buildings can collapse simply because they are forced to bear too much weight. Construction machinery—such as heavy cranes—that have been temporarily placed on the structure can trigger a collapse.
  • A construction company’s failure to evaluate and reduce risks during demolition: Even a building collapse done purposely could injure others if mistakes are made.
  • Worker mistakes: If a worker who does not have experience in building is hired for the job, their lack of ability could lead directly to a collapse.

Contact Our Fort Lauderdale Law Firm Today

If you were working on the building when it collapsed, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation.

It is our goal to get you the compensation you need and deserve.
