How Negligence Can Contribute to Balcony and Skylight Failure
Balcony and skylight failure can occur for any number of different reasons, but when negligence may be involved, it can specifically take the form of:
- Construction companies failing to properly and safely construct balconies and/or install skylights
- Designers and/or construction companies failing to abide by municipal codes regarding the construction of balconies and/or the installation of skylights
- Building owners failing to maintain aging balconies and/or skylights
- Building owners failing to repair balconies and/or skylights that clearly have problems
- Building owners failing to warn people about potentially dangerous balconies and skylights (like, for instance, by not posting caution signs or fully blocking off areas around these unsafe features).
Here, we also want to point out that:
- Balcony and skylight failure can happen in residential, as well as commercial, buildings.
- When balcony and skylight failures take place in commercial or retail settings, having an experienced lawyer who knows how to stand up to powerful corporations – like our Fort Worth premises liability attorneys – will be all the more crucial.
