Throughout Athens there are many balconies and decks to enjoy the beautiful weather, but not all are as safe as they may seem. Poor maintenance or faulty construction can lead to a collapse that can cause serious injury and even death to unsuspecting victims. At Burnside Law Firm, we fight for our clients that have been injured in a deck or balcony collapse, helping to determine who is at fault for the accident and pursuing compensation for the victims.
How many times have college students in Athens posed for pictures on a balcony or celebrated a graduation on a deck? Many happy occasions have occurred on these outdoor structures, but these celebrations can end in tragedy if the deck or balcony fails. Many are elevated one or more stories from the ground, posing a serious risk to those supported if the structure collapses. The medical expenses and ongoing personal cost of such an injury can last a lifetime. This is especially sad for college students who are just beginning their adult lives.
