Arnold and Itkin LLP issued the following announcement on Oct. 10.
Arnold & Itkin Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis filed suit against an apartment complex owner and manager. The case is being filed due to the failure of the defendants to provide tenants with a safe and hazard-free living environment. Specifically, the defendants failed to install, inspect, and maintain adequate barriers on a patio located on the second story.
Our client fell from a significant height to the concrete below due to the failure of a handrail. The individual suffered significant spinal injuries from the incident. There had been prior reports made to the apartment complex about handrail issues, but no steps were taken to ensure they were adequately secured. Those who own apartment complexes must prioritize safety in their buildings. When safety is ignored in favor of profits, tenants are forced to pay for negligence with their well-being.
The premises liability lawyers at Arnold & Itkin look forward to holding negligent parties responsible in this case. We will fight to secure the compensation that our client deserves. The case was filed in Potter County, Texas.
