Many establishments have decks or balconies in Georgia to enjoy the outdoors. Whether you are having dinner outside at a restaurant in Augusta, or standing on a hotel balcony in Athens, you should feel safe and secure. Unfortunately, not all property or business owners keep up with needed building maintenance and repairs, which can lead to a deck or balcony collapse. At Burnside Law Firm, we can help those injured in deck or balcony collapse receive the compensation they deserve when these preventable accidents occur.
The safety of a deck or balcony is the sole responsibility of the property owner. No one should be allowed to stand on a platform that is not stable or secure. When these elevated structures fail, serious injury, even fatalities, can occur. The owner of the building is responsible for maintaining a safe environment, especially when it is a commercial establishment. Through a premises liability claim against the property’s owner, those injured from a balcony or deck collapse can receive compensation to help pay for financial losses from the accident.
