$220,000.00 settlement obtained for a man who was struck in the head with debris from a collapsing ceiling. The plaintiff, a security guard, was at his job site when the ceiling in the building’s office partially collapsed striking him in the head and shoulders.
The defendants initially denied causing or having any reason to know of the condition of the ceiling. The defendants also denied the severity of the plaintiff’s injuries. Our investigation revealed that there had been an on-going leak in the building that weakened the ceiling and that the defendant owners were aware of the condition.
Our findings resulted in a settlement of $220,000.00 for our client.
