Balcony/Deck Collapse Injury Lawsuits Lawyer

A group photo on a balcony can turn into a group injury accident if the building is not well maintained. Decks and balconies can be dangerous if property owners do not ensure their safety. If a deck or balcony collapses, injuries sustained may be covered under premises liability laws and insurance.

Most decks and balconies have railings, stairways and other components that all need to be structurally sound. Injuries occur when any part of the structure collapses or fails. A loose railing could result in a fall one or more stories down to the ground. If a deck collapses partially, several people can be injured in just a few seconds. These accidents can occur due to lack of maintenance by the building owner or can be caused by poor construction. Injuries can include:

  • Broken limbs and bone fractures
  • Contusions
  • Cuts
  • Head injuries
  • Muscle, tendon or ligament tears or injury
  • Spine injuries
  • Death

Thousands of people are injured every year, some fatally, in deck and balcony accidents. Injuries can be serious and require extensive medical care, time lost from work and other expenses. Filing a premises liability claim can be the best option for recovering compensation to cover the costs of a serious injury.

Causes of Deck or Balcony Accidents

Decks and balconies require that safe and secure methods are used for construction and maintenance. When these structures fail, there is almost always someone that is liable. If the structure was recently built, the most obvious cause is poor construction. If the contractor that built the deck or balcony did not adhere to safety building codes, they may be liable for injuries. For older structures, the building owner is liable for maintaining its safety and limiting weight on the structure.
