Maximizing the Value of Your Building Collapse Claim
There are many ways that defects or negligence can contribute to falls, building collapses, or falling materials:
- Design defects in roofs, decks or floors
- Material defects in scaffolding, ladders or shoring material
- Inadequate shoring material for the conditions or weight of the job site
- Lack of appropriate safety equipment for workers and visitors
- Crane or elevator failures
Due to the complexity of most construction projects, determining the cause of a building collapse will require the input of engineering and design experts. In the case of equipment failure, like scaffolding, catwalks or falling cranes, our firm involves construction and product design experts in order to prove the cause of the accident.
At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, our multimillion-dollar victories are due in large part to our presentation of persuasive demonstrative evidence at trial, from product testing and parts analysis to model building and live trial demonstrations. The effort we put into building a strong and effective case plays a pivotal role in the favorable outcomes we achieve.
