Settlement For Skylight Fall Injury Victim

The client was on the roof of a building, taking photographs at the request of an insurance carrier. He stepped onto the roof, walked a few steps, then plunged through the roof into the building below. He fell through the building, 20 feet to the building’s floor. The fall was caused by a concealed skylight on the roof. While it’s possible the skylights were clear or translucent at one time, they were completely covered by dirt and debris at the time of our client’s fall. In fact, the skylights were so filthy that a person inside the building could not have seen additional light through them. The Corporate Defendant’s failure to perform any kind of cleaning or maintenance on the roof created a concealed hazard known as a latent defect. Latent defects create a well-recognized basis for liability against a premises owner. As a result of the fall, our client sustained extensive traumatic orthopedic injuries including wrist fracture, distal radius fracture-dislocation, comminuted left hip fracture, L3 burst fracture of the lumbar spine, and pulmonary contusion. He underwent multiple surgeries and was hospitalized for 5 days and then admitted to Rehabilitation Center for 21 days. Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers investigated the accident scene, securing drone footage evidencing the poorly maintained roof which they proved constituted a latent defect. Demand was made for tender of the $1 million policy limit which was tendered within 30 days. Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers’s track record of securing evidence immediately, coupled with their track record of aggressive litigation resulting in large verdicts in the courtroom most certainly played a role in the insurance carrier turning over the policy limits prior to filing a lawsuit. Our client can now begin to rebuild his life with his family. Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers … we help rebuild lives
