A Philadelphia couple have filed a lawsuit alleging the man suffered serious head injuries after a ceiling tile and container fell on him while working at his desk.
According to the claim, the man was sitting at his cubicle when, suddenly and without warning, the ceiling tile with container crashed down onto his head. The lawsuit alleges that his employer and two other companies “failed to properly repair the area in, on, of and/or above the ceiling tile, created a dangerous condition in the same area, and failed to remove the container in the same area.” As a result, the man suffered a concussion, post-concussion syndrome, headaches, and neck pain, among a number of other serious injuries. His wife is suing for loss of consortium.
Ceiling collapse lawsuits can take many months, even years to come to reach a final settlement. However, if injuries leave the victim unable to return to work and the bills are piling up, the wait can be financially devastating. Litigation funding is a perfect solution.
