Deck Collapse Injury Claims
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
In California, the owner of residential or commercial property has a duty to maintain the premises in a way that that minimizes the risk of injury to visitors. Frequently, homeowners or businesses fail to properly monitor the weight load on a deck, and the consequences can be devastating. If you have suffered an injury because of a deck collapse, you want an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your interests.
At Weber & Nierenberg, we bring over 30 years of experience to people throughout the San Francisco Bay area and northern California who have been hurt in a deck collapse. We place a high priority on personal service and attention, working directly with you throughout the legal process, from your first meeting with us until your claim is successfully resolved. We have intentionally kept our practice small, so that we have the flexibility to quickly respond to any developments in your case, and so that we can be accessible and available whenever you need to talk with us. Nonetheless, we offer the resources and knowledge base you customarily find at a larger law office.
Protecting People Injured in Balcony Collapses
The causes of a deck collapse can be varied, including:
- Negligence in the construction or maintenance of the deck. The party building the deck may have poorly designed the deck or used substandard materials. The deck may not have been built with treated lumber or may not have been inspected for wood rot or infestation.
- Failure to consider and monitor for maximum weight loads. Far too often, homeowners and businesses have events on decks without ever considering the maximum weight bearing capacity of the structure.
- Failure to properly connect the deck to the main structure. If the deck is not properly integrated with the house or building, it can fall away and collapse
We will help you seek full and fair compensation for all losses incurred in a deck collapse, from the recovery of lost wages or income to reimbursement for medical expenses. We will work with you to pursue compensation for physical pain and suffering, as well as loss of consortium or companionship.
