What if I’m injured because of a faulty handrail?
If you’re injured due to a faulty handrail, the very first thing that you need to know about that is there are codes and regulations that apply to the construction of that structure. There is a Florida building code, which applies in the Clearwater area, that will affect your case. We’re going to be doing an investigation right out of the gates to document and photograph what about that handrail condition led to the handrail failure. That’s what we call in engineering a failure analysis. We’ve handled those cases before. It can happen if there are improper inspections by the owner of the property, whether it’s a commercial property, residential property, or even a property that’s owned by a governmental entity.
First and foremost, we need to do our investigation. We need to do the failure analysis. We’re going to be looking to people who have experience in engineering, including mechanical engineers and structural engineers, to ensure that code is being complied with.
