Falls from Balconies and Landings

The Law Offices of Adrian Crane, P.C. April 27, 2015

Many people are injured and killed every year from falling off of balconies and landings. They are often the result of a structural defect. Some of the causes of structural defects are:

  • Improper workmanship of railings and protective structures,

  • Improper use of structural components and railings,

  • Inadequate design of railings and protective structures,

  • Railings that are not properly anchored,

  • Missing vertical rails, weakened or corroded railings that have not been maintained,

  • Materials such as railings and protective structures that are poor quality or defective and

  • Construction methods that are unsound.

Falls from balconies and landings usually result in severe injuries such as subdural hematomas, brain concussions and other traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractured and broken bones, severe contusions and fractured skulls. Paralysis, permanent brain injury and death often occur. Even a fall from a low height can leave the victim unable to work for months and cause them to incur high medical bills.
