Temporary Structure Collapses

While many property owners have the space to hold special events like weddings, concerts, and other gatherings, they may not have permanent structures that completely fit their needs or the needs of their guests. In such cases, people may choose to set up temporary structures like stages, tents, and pathways to fit the event. Unfortunately, if these structures are incorrectly assembled or defective, people on or near them may suffer serious injuries.

It is the responsibility of property managers to provide a safe environment for their guests and/or customers. If a person is injured due to the collapse or breakdown of a temporary structure, he or she may be eligible for compensation for pain, suffering, and medical expenses.

Causes of Temporary Structure Collapse

Stages, walkways, and tents may collapse if:

  • Persons assembling the structure are not properly trained
  • If important parts are worn or damaged
  • If the structure is not designed to accommodate the invited number of guests
  • If a mistake is made during construction
  • If the property is not designed to host or support the structure

If you are injured in an accident caused by the recklessness or negligence of a property manager, you may be able to pursue compensation for damages caused by the accident.
