Building Collapse

Illinois Building Collapse Attorneys

Chicago Premises Liability Lawyers

Building collapses are generally preventable accidents that result due to design, construction or maintenance defects.   Unfortunately, building collapses are usually catastrophic incidents that result in serious injuries, paralysis or death.  If you or a loved one has been injured in a building collapse accident, the Chicago personal injury attorneys at Ankin Law Offices can help you pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

Building collapses can be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Engineering and architectural design defects
  • Defective building materials
  • Failure to adhere to design specifications
  • Inspection failures that do not identify flaws in the building or structure
  • Failures to maintain the building
  • Foundation defects
  • Preventable fire or water damage

Victims of building collapses may be entitled to compensation under a theory of premises liability, which obligates property owners, architects and engineers to provide safe buildings and structures.  Construction workers that are injured in a building collapse accident may be entitled to a worker’s compensation claim, as well. 

Building collapses involve complex legal issues and a close examination of architectural and engineering standards.  The Chicago premises liability attorneys at Ankin Law Offices are familiar with premises liability and personal injury laws.  We assemble a team of professionals trained in structural engineering and architectural standards in order to conduct a thorough investigation of the building collapse. 

If you have been injured in a building collapse, contact the Chicago personal injury and worker’s compensation attorneys at Ankin Law Offices, LLC at (800) 442-6546 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.
