Our client was sitting on the couch in the living room of her apartment when all of a sudden and without warning, the celiling collapsed.

Parts of the collapsed ceiling struck her on her head and shoulders, causing her to sustain various injuries, including torn ligaments in her shoulder which required surgical intervention. The landlord, despite having been on notice that the ceiling had been leaking, failed to make the necessary repairs, thereby causing the ceiling collapse.

Justin Blitz, Esq. settled the case at a mediation with the insurance company for the landlord for $150,000 shortly after depositions were completed.
