Stairway Collapse Vault PK Parkour 21 Children Hurt Barrio Logan

21 Children; 2 Adults Hurt at Parkour Facility in Barrio Logan

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Nov. 13, 2017) — Twenty-one children and two female adults were injured Saturday night when a stairway and balcony collapsed onto a crowd of people.

The accident took place at 1699 Main Street at the parkour facility, Vault PK. An estimated 30 children were on the stairway waiting for free pizza when the stairway collapsed. The 10-by-30-foot wooden platform crashed down about 10 feet to the ground on top of people below.

Numerous ambulances rushed children and the adults aged 72 and 46 years old to Rady Children’s Hospital, Scripps Mercy, Sharp and UC San Diego Medical Center for treatment of minor to major injuries. The nature of the injuries were broken bones, head injuries and spinal injuries. There may have been others who were hurt, but taken themselves to a hospital for treatment.

 The facility is now being inspected by city building officials to determine what caused the collapse. The building permits will also be reviewed and the city will determine if the premises were up to code.

Premise Liability

There are many unanswered questions surrounding this accident, but ultimately it appears that the structure was not designed to handle the weight of so many people.

Liability for an accident such as this one will likely fall on the owner of the property, Vault PK and possibly the company who built the facility. Criminal charges are also a possibility in circumstances such as this one, but it’s not likely.

If you or a loved one were injured in an accident such as this one, it’s important that you get immediate medical attention and contact a qualified San Diego personal injury attorney.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
