Toilet Collapse Attorney/Injury


In our modern times, everyone is able to enjoy indoor plumbing and a toilet option in their home. But did you know that your toilet is susceptible to collapsing, causing great injuries? It is the case that a toilet can collapse without warning, and if you are using the facilities at the time, you may have a personal injury as a result of a toilet failing.

Different Types of Toilets Can Collapse Without Warning

There are many different types of toilets on the market today. These toilet types and construction are high efficiency or low water toilets, standard toilets and everything in between, including:

  • Single-flush tank gravity toilets
  • Dual-flush tank gravity toilets
  • Dual-flush tank flushometer toilets
  • Tank-type pressure assist toilets
  • Tank-type electrohydraulic toilets

What is important to know is that toilets are made out of many different materials as well. Most toilet bowls and structures are made of sturdy ceramic materials.

Flooring and Walls Can Collapse Around a Toilet If Made of Subpar Materials

Many people would not think of this point, but a toilet is made up of more than just the ceramic material featured around the toilet bowel. The toilet housing includes the walls and the flooring around a toilet. These structures are all part of the toilet housing. If the toilet structures of the walls and flooring are made out of subpar materials, the toilet has a high likelihood that it will collapse on the person using it.

If you are injured from a subpar flooring around a toilet, you need to call our law office. You may not have known, and how could you know that a toilet you used had the floor and walls made of non-code subpar materials. We are here if you want to talk about your case right now, just call!

Materials Approved for the Toilet Floor and Walls Need to Be Up to Code

The materials that are approved for the flooring for a toilet and for the wall structure around a toilet need to be on point. If the wrong materials are used for the toilet floor or wall, then the toilet will fall down and collapse, as the wall and flooring cannot support the weight of the ceramic toilet bowl, housings, equipment and water for the toilet tank.

The approved materials for the toilet floors and walls include:

  • Concrete and sealer
  • Ceramic tiling and grout
  • Sheet vinyl
  • Vinyl composite tiles
  • Sealed plaster
  • Epoxy gloss paint on concrete
  • Moisture sealed joints on walls

The materials that are not approved for the flooring or walls of a toilet floor include:

  • Wood
  • Carpet
  • Plastic coated hardboard
  • Painted wood flooring
  • Concrete textile fabrics for walls
  • Gypsum wall board

We can help you to initiate a lawsuit on the merits of your case. We can successfully win the case for you, and get you the recovery compensation that you need to cover your medical bills in this case for personal injuries after a toilet collapsed.

Flushing Toilets Have to Be Installed Based on Code Requirements or Risk Collapse

If a tank type of gravity toilet is not installed according to building codes, then there is a strong risk that the toilet can collapse. The tank, toilet, flooring and walls need to be made of the proper materials to prevent the toilet from collapsing under the weight of the full water tank structure of the toilet housing.

Single flush toilets can flush over 1.5 gallons of water with each flush, and dual flush toilets (that offer a half flush and full flush mode) can flush around 1 gallon for a reduced flush and 2 gallons for the full flush mode. When a toilet leaks, it has a higher risk of collapsing. Additionally, if the toilet’s pipes are improperly installed, then the waste extraction feature of the toilet will not work properly, and it can collapse along the drain line.

How Do People Fall When a Toilet Collapses?

The reason that there are serious personal injuries when a toilet collapses, is because the toilet collapsing creates a host of additional problems for the person using the facilities. If a toilet collapses, it will create a flood of water, on the flooring in the room where the toilet is housed. If a person falls into or around a toilet that has collapsed, the individual can be seriously injured from a:

  • Fractured hip
  • Broken arm or leg
  • Broken wrist
  • Spinal injury
  • Twisted ankle
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Broken facial bones
  • Broken teeth
