    Falling Broken Roof Tile Injury Lawsuit

    Falling Broken Roof Tile Injury Lawsuit lawyer attorney sue compensation incident law firm
    Undoubtedly, the concrete or terra cotta roof tiles so common in California add charm and interest to the structures they sit atop. In addition, they provide increased longevity and form a far better water barrier than the typical asphalt shingles used in other parts of the country. But property owners need to understand that tile roofs are far from a maintenance-free option. These surfaces still require regular inspections and care to ensure that this very attractive roofing surface does not become a life-threatening hazard.

    What Makes Roof Tiles So Hazardous?
    While asphalt shingles do not withstand heat and sun, as well as roof tiles, they are anchored more securely to the roof. Typical shingle sheets have many nails holding the flat shingle in place. However, a roof tile often has two or only one nails holding each of the tiles to the roof. In addition, the nail holding the tile is inserted in a hole drilled into the tile surface. And while the material is durable, it can develop stress cracks around the nail and become loose. And finally, the sheer weight of a roof tile at multiple pounds is sure to cause significant damage if it falls ten feet or more from a rooftop to the ground or strikes a nearby pedestrian.
    The Added Peril Of Something Falling From The Sky
    When you see a bird flying toward your car’s windshield, you instinctively flinch. It is a subconscious response to a threat your brain is trying to avoid. The same reflex occurs when you see an object that could strike you while walking down the street. The wind gusts, and you see tree branches over the sidewalk shimmering, so you raise your arm to protect your face and head.

    However, when a roof tile turns into a missile and blows off a rooftop, you will not likely notice the movement over ten feet off the ground and possibly out of sight. So there is a high likelihood that the roof tile hitting you will be a complete shock. You have no time to raise your arms to protect your skull and face, nor can you brace for the impact.

    In many cases, the falling roof tile is just the beginning of a chain reaction of injuries as you fall to the ground in a state of shock and disorientation. Many victims step off the edge of a sidewalk, trip over a step or curb, or simply collapse to the ground, suffering additional injuries to their lower extremities.
