Weather-Related Accidents

Adverse weather conditions can easily lead to serious injuries and death. Apart from situations where the weather itself is to blame, there are many other situations where the impact of adverse weather was heightened by someone’s negligence. Some examples include:

  • A tower crane is negligently set up. Strong winds cause it to collapse causing serious injuries to those on the ground.
  • An electrical access box in a sidewalk is improperly wired and a pedestrian is fatally electrocuted during a rainstorm.
  • A retaining wall is improperly built. Heavy rains cause it to collapse causing serious injuries or fatalities to pedestrians.
  • A natural gas pipe is improperly installed. Wind or rain damage to the property leads to electrical issues. Sparks ignite the natural gas, causing an explosion.
  • A home is not built to code. It collapses in heavy winds resulting in injuries.

In the first analysis, many of these situations can appear to be natural in origin. However, had all involved parties fulfilled all of their responsibilities, these accidents may not have occurred or may have been less severe.

If another person or a business contributed to the weather-related accident in which you were injured, we can help you hold that party responsible.
