Property owners never expect a vehicle to crash through their place of business or residence, but these occurrences are surprisingly frequent. Often, when a vehicle strikes a residential building, it is declared uninhabitable, due to the enormous structural damage that is caused. Temporary housing is needed until repairs are completed. Moreover, if a car should crash through a commercial building, business operations are abruptly stopped and remain incapacitated until the building is once again safe to occupy, leading to severe losses in income.
Types of Damage Due to a Vehicle Striking a Building
When a vehicle crashes through a building, it can cause major damage to walls, doors, windows, flooring and may even compromise the very foundation of the structure. The impact of a vehicle can shake an entire building and cause structural cracks. Personal belongings can also be damaged or destroyed by this type of disaster.
Furthermore, a vehicle may strike a water line, gas meter or electric utility meter and destroy pipes. In such cases, a fire can break out, exacerbating the damage.
