North Carolina Deck Collapse Injury Attorneys
Compensation for Accidents Involving Deck and Railing Collapses
North Carolina's Vacation Rental Act requires homeowners or property managers to ensure the safety of vacation rentals along the coast, making them responsible for any accidents that are caused by property defects. This means that if you were on vacation at a North Carolina beach such as Topsail, Wrightsville Beach, Ocean Isle or the surrounding areas, and you were injured by a collapsing railing, deck or dock, you may have a personal injury claim.
At Rhine Law Firm, P.C., we can help you determine your legal options for pursuing compensation following a deck collapse. Our North Carolina lawyers have more than 28 years of legal experience handling complex premises liability claims and other civil litigation.
Holding Negligent Owners And Property Managers Accountable
Defective construction materials, improper maintenance and improper design are typical causes of deck collapse accidents. Local and state codes require property owners and construction companies to use materials that can withstand the humidity of summer months and the salty air when building a deck in coastal areas. If such codes are not followed, materials succumb to erosion much faster, leading to weaker platforms, railings, joists and other integral parts.
Our firm can help you determine whether such oversight or negligence played a role in your accident. We seek to identify all possible responsible parties, including vacation rental property managers or management companies, housing or condo associations, and individual homeowners.
Pursuing Fair And Reasonable Compensation For You
Deck collapses typically result in catastrophic injuries such as back injuries, head injuries, broken bones and maybe even internal injuries. Often these injuries can lead to permanent disability such as paraplegia or quadriplegia, forever changing your life. When you work with our firm, we seek just compensation to which you may be entitled for:
- Your medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Rehabilitative costs
- Home adaptation or modification, as needed
- Pain and suffering
