$350,000 Recovery for Victim of Ceiling Collapse


Dawn M. Pinnisi secured a $350,000.00 recovery against the New York City Housing Authority after a ceiling collapse causes serious injuries to one of its tenants. Despite repeated complaints over the span of four months regarding a constant leak from the tenant’s kitchen ceiling, the housing authority failed to remedy the condition resulting in a ceiling collapse. The tenant was taken to the emergency room and ultimately underwent back surgery. The case was litigated in Kings County Supreme Court of New York and settled December 2017.
