The Dangers Of Collapsing Ceilings
A collapsing ceiling means two things: head injuries and difficult legal problems. When you have an injury because your ceiling caved in, you need to know what to do next. That’s why you need an experienced attorney.

We know that your injuries are significant and your bills may be intimidating. Our attorneys are here to listen to you, build a plan and pursue the compensation you need.
What Are Common Ceiling Collapse Injuries?
In New York, especially on Long Island, where there’s a lot of history, the buildings are old. Old buildings often need a lot of repairs, and if they’re not done right, you can get hurt.
One of the most frequent types of accidents lately has been ceiling collapses. These accidents most often lead to head and neck injuries, including:
- Spinal cord ruptures
- Spine fractures
- Skull fractures
- Eye damage
- Hearing damage
When a heavy object hits you on the head, all bets are off. There are so many possible complications and long-lasting injuries.
Pursuing A Ceiling Collapse Claim
Because the head and neck are such devastating places to take an injury, these claims are hotly fought by insurers. They will take every opportunity available to delay and deny your claim.
However, our experienced team can take on these cases and aggressively advocate for you. We speak with the insurance. We negotiate for what you deserve. And when push comes to shove, we will go to court to fight for your just compensation.
