Deck Collapse Results in Multiple Injuries

By Alpert Schreyer on September 9, 2014

A deck collapse at a Baltimore apartment complex resulted in multiple injuries. According to a WUSA9 news report, the incident occurred at the Colony at Kenilworth Apartments in Towson. Officials are looking into what caused the deck to collapse. Of the seven injured victims, one is in critical condition, four sustained serious, non-life-threatening injuries and two were treated for relatively minor injuries.

Under Maryland law, landowners are required to keep properties safe for their tenants. Each case is different, but in general, property owners must ensure that the electrical wiring is properly installed and maintained, the walkways are even, the fire detectors are in working order and proper precautions are taken to protect tenants from crime. Improper signage, broken sidewalks, slippery floors and faulty equipment are all hazardous conditions that can lead to serious injuries.

If you have been hurt on someone else’s property, it may be in your best interest to explore your legal rights and options. Injured victims in such cases may be able to seek compensation for damages including:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Time away from work
  • Cost of rehabilitation services
  • Other related damages

It is advisable to report the accident to the appropriate authorities, to seek out medical attention promptly and to keep records of all your expenses related to the accident. It can also prove useful to have photographs of where the accident took place and to have contact information for anyone who witnessed the accident. A Maryland premises liability attorney can help you stay abreast of the investigation and hold the at-fault party accountable for your injuries, damages and losses.
