Thorough Investigation of Building Collapse Cases

Gathering evidence is crucial in building collapse cases. Our lawyers conduct meticulous investigations, collaborating with structural engineers, building code experts, and others to understand what caused the collapse. We will identify any warnings that were ignored by the property owners.  

Determining Liability in Building Collapse Cases

Establishing liability in building collapse cases is a complex task. Our attorneys work diligently to identify who is at fault, whether it’s a property owner, construction company performing renovations, a demolition company removing supports, or even a downspout from a neighboring building that adds excess water onto the roof of the collapsed building.  We will identify all responsible entities and hold them accountable.


Accurate Calculation of Damages in Building Collapse Incidents

Building collapse incidents can result in various damages. The most obvious injuries come from the physical trauma suffered in the collapse. Often these injuries just scratch the surface of the total damages picture. Our clients will often suffer respiratory injuries from inhalation of debris. Also, the emotional trauma experienced from being in a collapse can be equally debilitating.  We will partner with you to explain how the collapse has impacted you and your loved ones, including by identifying your past medical bills, need for future medical care, your past and future lost wages, your pain and suffering, and your loss of enjoyment of life’s pleasures. Our attorneys meticulously evaluate and present your damages to ensure that you receive fair compensation..

Strong Court Representation for Building Collapse Cases

If necessary, our building collapse lawyers provide strong and effective representation in court. With a proven track record of success, we will force those responsible to offer fair and significant compensation or we will take them to court and try your case. 


Injury Law Partners are experts in all types of construction accident cases. Additionally, we have experience working on building collapses matters. We will use our skills and experience to uncover what caused the collapse and then confirm who was responsible for allowing the collapse.  We will hold those who allowed this collapse to hurt you responsible. 

All medical costs related to the collapses should be recoverable. This hospital visits, doctor visits, physical therapy, prescriptions, surgery, and more. We will not only fight to have all of your past medical expenses rewarded, but we will also work with a certified life care planner to identify all future medical care so you are protected moving forward. Our lawyers are skilled at ensuring that you receive the maximum  compensation.

Yes, a lump-sum settlement can be a viable option for building accident injury cases. However, every case is different and must be analyzed carefully.  By retaining our lawyers, we will represent you and ensure your interests are protected.  A lump sum may or may not be in your best interests.  It may be more advantageous to accept an individual settlement, or permit us to try your case in Court. As your attorneys, we will work with you to explain the process and allow you to make the best decision to ensure you  secure a fair and comprehensive result. 

The timeline for receiving benefits varies by state, and can often take years to resolve.  However,  our lawyers have the expertise to expedite the process as quickly as legally possible.  One of our sayings at Injury Law Partners is: justice delayed is Justice denied.  We will aggressively push the case forward so that you can obtain a fair resolution in as little time as possible.
