$225,000 Recovery for Wrongful Death as a Result of a Defective Balcony
Fall from Balcony Results in $225K in Compensation
Steve Caya recovered $225,000 for the family of a 69 year old man who was killed when he fell from a balcony during a social gathering at the defendant’s home.
The decedent fell through a temporary railing. The case was complicated by the fact the defendant had no insurance and the decedent was legally intoxicated. In addition, the decedent was warned of the condition of the balcony prior to his fall. Despite these hurdles, Steve Caya was able to obtain a significant settlement by establishing through expert testimony the balcony was improperly constructed, did not meet building code standards and was not properly inspected by the building inspector. The settlement was reached shortly before trial.
