The Civil Code engages the responsibility of the owner in the event that an individual is injured by the total or partial ruin of his building (a falling staircase, a collapsing roof). Liability is presumed if the victim succeeds in establishing that the deterioration is due to a construction defect or a lack of maintenance. On the other hand, it happens in certain cases that the owner is not held responsible if he demonstrates that the accident was unpredictable, that is, a case of force majeure, fault of a third party or the victim.
