Houston Balcony Accident Lawyer
Balconies, decks, and porches often offer views, create functional outdoor living spaces, and allow you to sit back and relax. However, it is important to know that a significant number of serious balcony collapses and deck accidents take place each year around Texas – and that a many of these accidents and injuries are the result of negligence or carelessness.
How do Texas balcony collapses and deck accidents happen?
- Poor maintenance by balcony owner
- Age – such as broken, rusting or rotting materials
- Weak materials or inappropriate building materials
- Poor design or construction
- Improper bolts, fastening materials, or supports
- Not built to modern codes, building regulations, or safety standards
- Too many people on balcony
- Dangerous balcony railings and stairs
The consequences of a balcony collapse can be extremely serious. Anyone standing on the balcony itself may experiences a significant fall, while those below can be struck by debris as well as anything on the deck at the time. Common injuries from balcony falls include traumatic brain injuries, back and spine injuries, broken bones, lacerations, and internal injuries.
Do You Deserve Financial Compensation for Your Texas Balcony Collapse Injuries?
If someone else, such as a negligent builder or property owner, caused your balcony collapse injury, you may be eligible to recover damages through a civil court case. These premises liability cases could involve landlord tenant laws as well as local building codes and regulations. Because of the complex nature of the legal issues surrounding deck accidents and balcony falls, it is critical that you are represented by an attorney with experience in these areas.
You may deserve compensation if you can prove that the balcony collapse was caused by another person’s negligence and if you can prove that your injuries were the result of the balcony collapse. A serious fall accident and injury can change your life – collecting damages after your accident can help you move past your accident and mitigate your losses, including your hospital bills, ongoing medical needs, lost time at work, long-term disabilities, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
