Question

Can I sue if a ceiling collapsed on me after repairs?

can my brother sue his landlord? My brother is renting a house and after a hurricane, he went back home and the ceiling fell on him and hurting him. He went back in once the lights came back on and he thought they had fixed the ceiling. Apparently, they hadn't fixed it well enough fell on him so is the landlord's insurance or the people who fixed responsibly?

I'm sorry to hear that happened. I hope your brother is okay. In the situation, you would want to seek legal advice. There are several variables here. The fault might be shared by both the landlord and the repair company. An insurance adjuster would be the one to determine fault in this case. Good luck and if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.
