Roof Collapses

Were you or a loved one injured from a roof collapse?

Understanding roof collapses

Roofs that are properly designed, built, and maintained are supported, strong, and remain secure. Roofs that are properly installed and inspected do not simply collapse without warning, short of a major earthquake or similar event. Roof collapses occur when the roof has fundamental issues that have been neglected or overlooked.

Common Causes of Roof Collapse

  • Increased weight to the roof from heavy rain or snow.
  • Aging roof not properly repaired, maintained, or needed replacement.
  • Water intrusion damage from leaks and improper drainage
  • Structural damage and dry rot
  • Inadequate or compromised roof drainage
  • Neglected roof maintenance
  • Design flaws
  • Falling objects accidents
  • Demolition or heavy machinery accidents

Victims of Roof Collapse have rights

When a roof collapses, injuries, and sometimes fatalities can occur. A roof collapse is often preventable with proper infrastructure design and maintenance. If you or a loved one were injured from a roof collapse, you should be represented and compensated fairly in the event of an injury.
