Balcony falls and other potential premises liabilities

On Behalf of | Mar 2, 2017 | Premises Liability |

What if a person staying at a hotel in Hawaii is enjoying the oceanic view from the balcony when the railing dislodges, causing th guest to fall to the ground? Balcony falls have occurred on many occasions, resulting in catastrophic injuries, sometimes even death. It begs the question as to who may be held accountable for such tragedies?

Falling from a balcony that was not properly secured may be grounds for a premises liability claim against a hotel owner. This type of accident is one of many that may come under this category. Any time a person suffers injury on property where another person had an obligation to keep visitors safe, there might be grounds for filing an injury claim in court.

Such claims often involve children bitten by dogs, for instance. Swimming pool accidents, falling on wet floors in department stores and other similar occurrences are all valid reasons for investigating whether another party or parties might be identified as potential sources of financial relief for damages sustained. Injuries suffered in such accidents may require extensive medical care and ongoing living assistance long into the future. Such care is obviously expensive, typically placing undue financial burden on those already suffering.
