As the events surrounding Tuesday’s events are still being investigated it is unclear if a safety defect with the building or the actual window played any part in the fall. If an injury is caused by a landlord’s failure to properly maintain their property the injured party, or their family, may be eligible to claim compensation. For more information click here.
