When you are on someone else's property, even if it is a friend or neighbor, you still have the right to be protected from unnecessary hazards. If you or a family member were injured in someone's backyard or on someone's deck, you may be entitled to compensation. Premises liability is a part of personal injury law that holds landowners responsible for injures on their property that could have been avoided with some foresight. If you have been injured by someone else's faulty deck or in their yard, you should speak to one of our Personal Injury Lawyers.
Backyard Deck Injury Lawyers
There are many ways a person can be injured on someone else's property. For example, a deck collapse could lead to severe injuries. The owner of the property probably had some clue as to the deck's condition prior to to the collapse and in some cases the deck may have been constructed by them. The law says that in these types of situations, the landowner should be responsible for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering because your injury was due to their lack of consideration.
While deck collapses are a common accident, there are many other hazards that can injure people. Other backyard injures occur from:
- Poorly constructed/dilapidated playground equipment
- Swimming pools
- Large holes
- Gazebo collapses
- Animal bites
