Indiana Lawsuit Filed After Deck Collapse Leaves Family Seriously Injured

Feb 26, 2014 | Slip and Fall

Rental property owners have a responsibility to ensure the safety of those they allow on their property or to warn patrons of dangers that may be present. Failure to do can cause injuries and lead to a lawsuit against the property owner for damages.

Such a case was recently filed in connection with a deck collapse at a southern Indiana rental property that left two-dozen people injured. The group had gathered on the deck of a New Albany clubhouse on Dec. 22, 2013 in order to have their photo taken, but the deck collapsed, causing those standing on it to suffer an Indiana Slip and Fall Accident that sent them plummeting roughly 20 feet to the ground below. Surveillance cameras captured the incident and the family says three of the victims are still trying to walk.

The family is now suing the property owners, the homeowner’s association, and the company who built the deck, claiming their negligence is responsible for the injuries that they suffered. More about the lawsuit can be found here.

The Indiana Personal Injury Lawyers with Stewart & Stewart Attorneys are aware of how difficult it can be to overcome injuries resulting from an accident and hope a decision in the case that was filed brings a sense of closure to the victims and their families.
