BRADLY BAYLY LEGAL
Legal Leaders in Balcony Collapses
Bradley Bayly Legal has extensive experience in conducting claims for clients who have suffered as a result of balcony collapses or other serious injury by accident. Balcony collapse claims are generally complex and require skilled and experienced lawyers to conduct the legal action.
Poorly constructed or maintained balconies put people at enormous risk of injury if they collapse. Balconies tend to be high above the ground, so when they collapse, the circumstances can be tragic. Many people involved in balcony collapse accidents end up severely injured or dead.
Property owners have a responsibility to ensure their properties are maintained in a safe condition.
If you have suffered injuries in a balcony collapse, you may be entitled to compensation through a public liability claim.
The experienced team of public liability lawyers at Bradley Bayly Legal have the knowledge and expertise required to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve due to the injuries you received in a balcony collapse.
We analyse all available evidence to find out the cause of a balcony collapse, including investigating:
- the construction of the property;
- past maintenance records of the property; and
- whether there were any obvious warnings signs that should have been addressed, such as obvious structural weaknesses, obvious termite damage or wear and tear).
When a balcony collapses, compensation for the victims usually comes from the property owner’s insurance policy (if they have one).
Where a balcony collapse involves a property that is managed by a real estate agent, Bradly Bayly Legal lawyers closely examine actions by the real estate agent.
Too often, rental property inspections by real estate agents are quick, lack thoroughness or attention to detail and are carried out by poorly trained and/or unqualified staff in terms of identifying potential structural faults or potential dangers that may arise due to poor maintenance and repairs.
As a result, we look very carefully at the inspection records carried out by the real estate agent to determine whether those inspections have been carried out correctly. If not, compensation claims can be directed against the real estate agent’s insurance.
