Issue: Defective construction, faulty maintenance
Lieff Cabraser represents tenants, customers, and other persons who have suffered grave injuries, and the families of loved ones who died, due to unsafe balconies and decks that collapse. Balcony and deck collapses occur all too frequently across the U.S., often due to faulty construction or poor building maintenance leading to dry rot from water intrusion or termite damage.
Our law firm has been recognized by U.S. News, Best Lawyers, and the National Law Journal as one of the top plaintiffs’ law firms in the nation.
When negligence or defect are at issue, most states allow the injured to file legal claims against those they allege to be responsible for their accidents. Individuals and businesses that allow expense concerns to trump safety bear legal responsibility for those injured on balconies in storefronts, parking lots, apartments, and homes.
