$8,350,000 for Ceiling Collapse Injury to Head & Spine


New York Ceiling Collapse Injury Lawyer

Hurt by a falling ceiling?

A ceiling collapse injury lawyer needs to establish the precise cause of the collapse by a preponderance of the evidence. Ceiling collapse incidents are frequently caused by water damage, construction defects, and poor maintenance, among other factors.

Injuries sustained in a ceiling collapse are often quite severe. Plaster or beams crashing down on a resident or house guest result in serious injuries ranging from broken bones, to traumatic brain injury and even death.

In the matter of Karabaza v. Manhattan Beach Estates Assocs., the Plaintiff was the tenant of a rental apartment building in Brooklyn.

When the ceiling collapsed, the tenant sustained serious injuries to the head, spine, and vertebrae in the back.

The Plaintiff’s ceiling collapse injury lawyer was able to prove at trial that the building owner:

● knew or should have known of the dangerous condition, and

● failed to take adequate corrective action

The jury returned a verdict in Plaintiff’s favor, providing for total monetary damages of $8,350,000. These sums are applied to medical bills, lost wages, and pain & suffering.  In addition, the compensation covers handicap accessible motor vehicle transportation as needed for life, and home health attendants at the victim’s Brighton Beach apartment.

The large verdict awarded in his case likely left the Defendants regretting the matter was not settled in advance of trial.
