A Piece of the Ceiling Fell and Hit Me
Do I need a Lawyer if a Piece of Ceiling Fell On Me?
While this doesn’t happen very often, there are times when a piece of the ceiling will break free and fall. There is no way to predict or prevent the deterioration of a building, but proper maintenance is necessary before something small turns into a larger issue. This can happen for a variety of reasons, it can be due to a storm or the general negligence of the person that owns the building. Either way, you are entitled to having your medical costs and loss of time at your job reimbursed. Sometimes the owner of the building will give you the contact information for their insurance. When you have a hard time getting someone to speak to you, you may want to call an attorney with a focus on premises liability-related accidents. We work on your behalf.
Building accidents in the Bronx could be caused by a number of things. They could be loose bricks, damaged drywall, or any piece of the building falling off, as well as an awning that may come loose in the wind. While nobody wants this sort of thing to happen, it happens more than you might think. Storms and wind can be hard on a building, as well as ice and snow that can weaken and damage the construction. When there is a huge build-up of ice, that also can slide off the building and injure someone.
It is important that you do everything you can to avoid any injuries in the first place, but sometimes it’s unexpected and unavoidable. Building accidents can be devastating and may even result in death. During these times, it is critical that you speak with an accident attorney and find out your rights.
