Balcony Collapse or Railing Failure

Chicago Balcony Collapse or Railing Failure Injury Compensation Attorneys

Enjoying the view from a balcony at someone’s home or place of business can unexpectedly be rather dangerous if that person or business owner does not take the proper precautions to ensure your safety. If you or a loved one has recently been injured due to a balcony collapse or railing failure, you may be able to obtain compensation for your pain and suffering and receive reimbursement for your medical expenses. Poorly constructed or improperly maintained balconies put people at high risk for injury caused by a deck or railing collapse, and victims should not be expected to responsible for pain and suffering they incur as a result.

Individuals who own a business or invite people to their property have increased responsibility and are held to a higher standard in order to ensure their visitor’s safety. Those who do not adhere to these standards and uphold their duties are said to be negligent, and may be held liable for their actions or inactions. An experienced and knowledgeable Chicago Balcony Injury Attorney, such as those found on our legal team, will be able to adequately assess the details of your circumstances and secure the best possible outcome on your behalf.

Pain and Suffering and Loss of Wages Recovery

If the required legal elements are found, the owner will be held liable and you may be able to recover the following damages:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Retroactive and future lost wages
  • Loss of quality of your life
  • Permanent impairment damages

For example, CBS reported a discovery in 2012 based on an inspection conducted by the Chicago Department of Buildings and issued a total of 600 iron-related balcony violations throughout the city. If a building owner does not conduct regular inspections and maintain their building at code standards, they are likely in violation and may be held liable for any or all injuries that occur on their property as a result. Our firm fights hard against building owners and insurance companies to secure favorable outcomes for victims who have a right to just compensation.
