North Carolina Building Collapse Injury Lawyers
Let Our Legal Team Help You Rebuild Your Life
When a building collapses during construction, workers may be harmed or even killed. Regardless of how or why the structure came down, if you were injured on the job, you have the right to file for workers' compensation. While you might hope that the process is simple and straightforward, it usually isn’t.
That’s why Lanier Law Group is here. Our experienced North Carolina building collapse lawyers are proud to represent construction workers, electricians, and other workers who suffer injuries on the job and desperately need compensation.
In some cases, we may be able to pursue a third-party workplace accident claim against a negligent party other than your employer who may be liable for the building collapse. This may be the case if defective architectural design, faulty building materials, or other construction defects led to the collapse.
Common Causes of Building Collapses
There are many reasons a building may collapse. At Lanier Law Group, our experienced lawyers strive to help clients who are injured or who have lost loved ones in all types of building collapses.
Some of the common causes of building collapses include:
- Weak foundation: Many building collapse accidents are caused by a weak foundation. It is the responsibility of architects and engineers to ensure that a structure is sound.
- Earthquakes: In some cases, Mother Nature is to blame for a building collapse. Yet, even if an earthquake is responsible for a structure falling down, you may still be able to seek compensation if the building was not property retrofitted to withstand earthquakes.
- Improper demolition/use of explosives: Explosives are frequently used to demolish buildings, but they must be used safely and responsibly.
- Poor electrical wiring: Extreme heat can reduce the structural integrity of a building’s support beams. Faulty electrical wiring can cause a fire that destroys a structure.
Building collapses are known for causing catastrophic injuries that can result in long-term disability. Our North Carolina building collapse lawyers can help you obtain compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages. If needed, we can pursue compensation from a negligent third party in order to compensate you for your pain, suffering, and other non-economic damages.

There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.- Diane W.
I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!- Phillip J.
Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not.
