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.

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.
