Partner Rodney Diggs and Associate Marie Maurice obtained a six-figure settlement on behalf of a tenant whose ceiling collapsed on him while in the shower, causing him to fall and sustain numerous injuries.

The plaintiff noticed that his bathroom ceiling had a leak and reported it multiple times to the acting manager on-site, but nothing was done to fix the issue. While in the shower one day, the ceiling collapsed on the plaintiff’s head, neck, shoulders and back area, knocking him down and severely injuring him. This was not the first time a ceiling had collapsed at that property and the plaintiff had made prior complaints regarding issues with his unit.
