As you may have heard, last weekend a balcony collapsed in Malibu injuring multiple people and leaving two critically injured. Our firm is already hard at work representing some of the victims of the accident, and with Attorney Shervin Lalezary leading our team, we will fight to help get these victims the compensation they deserve for their pain and suffering.
Two people were critically injured on Saturday in Malibu when a balcony collapsed onto the sand and rocks below. There were more than 15 people on the deck during the collapse and many have received medical treatment.
The owner of the home rented it out to a group of young people for the weekend. Neighbors claim there were about 30 people at the home attending the party, far more than the 6 people limit the homeowner set. The fire department has now declared the house uninhabitable.
A witness stated, “We heard a crack, and I literally saw all my best friends and my girlfriend fall 15-feet to the rocks. The deck just literally gave out. It could’ve been a lot worse, but it’s pretty awful.”
The homeowner claims to have called in an attempt to get the people to leave for three hours before the incident. Fifteen minutes after the phone call the balcony collapsed.
Lalezary Law Firm’s Involvement
Some of the people who were injured in the balcony collapse are looking to file a lawsuit. Attorney Shervin Lalezary will be representing at least 4 of these people. “Some of my clients have orthopedic issues. One of them hit their head,” stated attorney Shervin Lalezary.
When the balcony collapsed it caused two people to be critically injured. Four more had moderate injuries that required them to be transported to the hospital, and five people had injuries treated onsite.
