Los Angeles Building Collapse Attorneys

Falling Material Injury Attorneys in Southern California

Falling from heights and being struck by falling objects is one of the most common and serious dangers on a construction site or job site. The tragedy of this type of accident is that falls are entirely preventable with proper precautions and safety equipment, barring an equipment defect. Our Los Angeles building collapse attorneys at Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, can representinjured construction workers and job site visitors who were injured in a building collapse accident, from a fall, or from being struck by falling materials.

To learn more about how our firm can help you achieve the financial recovery you need for your injuries, contact our Los Angeles law firm to schedule a free consultation.

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.

California Attorneys Representing Construction Workers Injured by Negligence

In one notable building collapse case, our firm achieved $78 million in a combined verdict and settlement for 12 clients involved in a roof collapse construction accident, in which some clients fell six stories and others clung to rebar 50 feet in the air until they were rescued. In a more recent case, a cell phone equipment installer at the LA Convention Center fell over 40 feet through the roof because of a badly designed catwalk.

These are only a few of the successful cases we’ve handled for injured workers and others involved in building collapses and falls. We excel in handling defective product, equipment, and materials cases. Our firm has been named the “#1 personal injury law firm in California” by Best Lawyers in America and a Top Tier national firm in Product Liability by U.S. News and World Report’s Best Lawyers.

To learn if we can assist you, please contact a Los Angeles building collapse lawyer at our firm. We represent clients in the Los Angeles area and throughout Southern California and the entire state.
