Lafayette, LA Personal Injury Lawyer
Many accidents are caused by structural failures, usually caused by improper construction, faulty design or a failure to follow building specifications. These failures can range from stairway handrails or steps to building collapses. Although very similar to failures in defective product cases, the legal burden of proof in structural failures can be very different, usually involving forensic engineering analysis and testing. Issues about what the owner knew or should have known become very important. Similar to defective product cases, these cases also require engineering analysis early on.
The engineering and legal expertise of Mr. Matt and the extensive experience of the attorneys at the Law Offices of Matt & Allen give our clients the advantage of independently discovering how and why the accident happened early in the case, helping to ensure that our clients recover the full measure of their damages.
