Property owners are required to take good care of their property while those who are in charge of building structures should do their jobs properly in order to avoid accidents.
If a structure is not properly built or secured and someone was killed because of it, the property builder or owner may be held liable for wrongful death.
Niko Laurie, 4, suffered from fatal injuries after falling from a third-story window. The fall accident reportedly occurred along the 1300 block of Marina Pointe Drive in Del Rey.
In this case, the property owner may be held liable for the accident if he failed to secure his property and the boy fell due to such failure. Meanwhile, the property builder may be required to compensate the boy’s loved ones if it was proven that the accident occurred because the property was not built properly or substandard materials were used in building it.
For more information about fall accidents and wrongful death cases, you are encouraged to call a Los Angeles personal injury attorney.
