Wall collapses have been the cause of some of the most disastrous construction site accidents in the history of our country. Construction workers can be buried under heaps of dirt, rocks, and construction equipment, and the typical result is death or horrific injuries like permanent disfigurement, crushed bones, amputation, spinal cord injuries, and brain damage. Wall collapses usually occur when walls have not been sufficiently reinforced. Use of defective materials, imperfect building plans or designs, and deficient inspections can all lead to catastrophic wall collapses. When walls are not properly braced, even strong winds sometimes cause them to fall.
What to do if you have been injured in a wall collapse accident:
First, it goes without saying that you need to get medical attention as soon as possible for yourself and anyone else involved in the accident. It is also crucial that the accident be investigated thoroughly. This includes preserving the evidence and interviewing witnesses. A good personal injury lawyer will be able to accomplish this task for you, especially if evidence preservation on the site requires a court order. You should also contact the authorities responsible for oversight.
