Fall from Faulty Deck Causes Serious Injury


Litigation Type - Slip, Trip and Fall

Client Injury - Back and Neck Injuries

Our client was enjoying Mother's Day at a home with a self-built deck when the railing he was leaning on gave way. He fell 15-20 feet crashing to the ground. He landed on his back and was struck in the head by a 4x4 wooden post. Thankfully, he did not suffer paralysis due to the fall.

Paul Downes sued the insurance company of the homeowner for negligence because he did not install the deck railing in a safe manner and failed to follow building code. He recovered $210,000 to help our client pay for his extensive medical bills and lost wages.
