Personal Injury Attorney in Alpharetta
What causes a deck to collapse?
Georgia is a sunny, beautiful state on the East Coast of the United States. As such, many of the homes are equipped with decks that are connected to the exterior structure of the house. These decks are excellent for enjoying the beautiful weather, but can be treacherous when not properly built or attached. Improper methods include using nails, or lag screws that are not screwed into the building's rim joists. Improperly attached decks are then number one cause of deck collapses in Georgia. Homeowners may not know when their deck was built or what method was used to attach it and, instead of finding out, ignore the issue and end up suffering personal injury in a deck collapse accident.
Getting Compensation for Your Injuries
Since these accidents are usually a result of the homeowner's negligence, they are considered to be premises liability cases under Georgia state law. If you were injured when a deck collapsed, whether at a friend's house or anywhere else, the property owner should compensate you for your medical care. Cuts and lacerations, broken bones, brain injuries or spinal cord injuries could all result from such an accident, so don't hesitate to consult with an Alpharetta deck collapse attorney right away to find out what steps you could take toward fair compensation.
