It’s shocking to know that there is still a pretty common frequency in balcony railing accidents. In this day and age, most people expect that the buildings and structures they live in are secure and completely safe. Not so. There are thousands of balcony railing accidents a year, enough to unfortunately keep us working hard for victims all year round.
Balconies should be secured by a sturdy and stable railing. They’re installed in a number of locations: Hotels, apartments, houses, and places of business. Remember that anyone who owns a building has the responsibility of making sure that their structure is safe and sound for anyone who might visit or depend on that place as a residence. Landlords and apartment managers are notorious for letting their balconies fall into disrepair so bad that they collapse or fail at a critical point.
A balcony railing should be able to support the weight of more than just one person. No one should have to deal with loose balcony railings or worse yet, complete failures where the entire balcony structure gives way and people fall to horrific injury or even death. Despite the fact that there have been advancements in balcony safety over the years, there are still people injured because of faulty balcony railings or collapses each year, and we take on the cases just like we do other accident cases.
We start by finding the person or people responsible. Sometimes it’s an entire organization that’s responsible for allowing the unsafe balcony to continue in operation. Who failed to repair the weak balcony or the unsteady railings that caused the injury? Once we’ve ascertained who is responsible for the accident, we file a lawsuit on your behalf and aggressively pursue the maximum amount of compensation you’re allowed. Like any other accident case where an injury is involved, you can get damages for a number of things:
– Lost wages
– Future lost wages
– Pain and suffering
– Medical bills
And that’s just the beginning. Any type of help you had to seek out because of the accident is something that we might be able to add in and increase the total of your compensation. Some lawyers might be afraid to go after the maximum amount of compensation but we’re not shy about this. We firmly believe that people who don’t repair or replace unsafe balconies and balcony railings are showing a blatant disregard for human life that needs to be addressed in a courtroom and with a pocket book. Your injuries were not your fault and we don’t want you to have to pay a dime because of someone else’s negligence.
