Of all the hazards that can happen on any sort of property, a roof collapse can be one of the most shocking and devastating to those affected by it. 

It is the property owner’s responsibility to keep their premises safe to avoid hazards like a roof collapse. When the proper steps aren’t taken, and an injury occurs, this can result in a costly and emotional lawsuit. 

Read on to find out more about roof collapses and what to do if you sustained an injury due to a property owner’s negligence

Common Causes of Roof Collapses

There are many factors that can lead to a roof collapse. Here are some of the most common: 

  • Hiring incompetent or unqualified labor for roof work. 
  • Not taking the time to deal with problems with the building.
  • Negligent inspection, repair and maintenance.
  • Failure to deal with an infestation of rats, insects or vermin that can eat and weaken the structure.
  • Failure to take care of pipe leaks in the ceiling. 

What to Do If You Were Injured in a Roof Collapse Accident

Roof collapses aren’t always caused by an owner’s negligence. In order to be compensated for your injuries, you must prove it was the owner’s actions that led to the collapse. 

This will involve establishing that you were owed a duty of care and that the duty was breached. You must also prove the breach was what caused your injury.

Establishing a breach of duty of care can be complicated and it is best to have a reliable premises liability lawyer on your side to see to it that you get the compensation you deserve.
