Building Structure Injury Lawyer in NYC

The collapse of a structure at a construction site can cause death and injury on a wide scale, affecting workers at the site, passersby, emergency responders, and people in adjoining buildings. At The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny in Manhattan, we represent the injured, as well as family members of people who die in structural collapses. Our clients include construction workers (including undocumented workers), pedestrians, firefighters, police, and emergency medical technicians. Call (212) 421-0300 for a free case evaluation.

Causes of Building and Structural Collapse

Structural failure can occur during new construction or when remodeling an existing structure. Failure of load-bearing elements may be caused by:

  • Construction activities on the site or adjoining property
  • Structural design errors
  • Improper materials used in construction
  • An explosion
  • A fire
  • Improper repairs
  • Demolition

Our lawyers work with experts who can identify the cause of the structural collapse and hold the responsible parties accountable. We have recovered more than $100 million for our clients.

Long-Term Health Effects of Building Collapses

Workers who survive a building collapse can face long-term health dangers from exposure to toxic substances such as airborne smoke and dust, pathogens, and gas leaks. For this reason, it’s important to seek legal advice even if you are not aware of any immediate injuries.

An attorney with a background in construction: Before he became an attorney, Richard M. Kenny worked in construction and was a member of a laborers’ union. As a result, he understands the hazardous conditions that construction workers face on the job every day. He also understands how safety shortcuts can put workers and others at risk.
