Q: I fell through a vent in the floor of my rental property
I had put in several work orders for them to be replaced because they were old rusted, and had missing pieces. Well I fell through the vent in had to go to the hospital which further injured and injury I already had. I reported this to them and nothing was done and I didn't know what steps to take. I was put in a boot and on crutches.
A: So sorry this happened to you! These types of cases can be surprisingly difficult under North Carolina law. Whether or not there is a remedy available to you at law is very fact specific. You should seek a consultation from an experienced personal injury lawyer to review the facts of your case in detail. Many personal injury lawyers will provide a free initial consultation. Best regards. Richard
