Falling Satellite Dish Injury Accident Attorney

When you look around your community, it is becoming more common to see satellite dishes, receivers, and other equipment used for television and internet mounted on the roofs of homes. These units were prevalent decades ago when you saw massive dish-shaped units mounted on rooftops. Then, most companies turned to cable connections to provide internet and cable television services. But now the process has come full circle, and more reasonably sized satellite dishes and panels are appearing on rooftops across the city and country.

What residents are wondering about is who is installing these satellite dishes and who becomes responsible if something happens that causes an injury to another person or property. Of course, we all know there can be issues with an installation project, even when the job is done by what most would consider a seasoned professional. And when the installation is completed by a homeowner trying to save a few dollars, the risks could be considerably higher.

The Potential Hazards Of Roof Mounted Satellite Dishes

When ordering a new television or internet service that requires a satellite dish or panel, most companies tell you that mounting the unit on the roof is fast and straightforward. But you need to understand that they are selling you a service that requires this piece of hardware to function. And they will say whatever it takes to get you to sign the contract and send them money.

In reality, you do not want to attach a satellite dish to your roof for many reasons. And the most honest and reasonable information about this process comes from a reliable roofing expert with no vested interest in the project. And in reality, they could make some money repairing the damage caused to the roof if you ignore their advice and install the unit there.

The common issues associated with a roof-mounted satellite include:

  • The mounting hardware puts holes in the roof, which can allow water to leak into the roofing material and structure, causing it to decay and weaken
  • The satellite is typically located high on the roof for a clear view of the sky, which also makes it prone to damage from high wind – when the satellite moves, the hardware moves and will cause added damage to the roof and degrade the mount
  • Constant exposure to sunlight and poor weather can degrade the mounting hardware and the satellite base, making it less stable on your roof

While all of these issues might sound like hazards for a roof leak, they are also dangerous to anyone who is near your roof when a strong wind blows through. The deteriorating roofing material and structure, damaged hardware, and aging satellite bracket can easily fail, allowing the satellite dish to suddenly fall from the roof and injuring an innocent passerby, guest to your home, or family member.

Who Is Responsible For A Falling Satellite Dish Injury Accident?

Determining who is to blame for a falling satellite dish injury accident is not always as easy as you might think. The first thought for most people is that the homeowner is fully responsible. And in some cases, they could be due to premises liability laws. Property owners have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for guests and anyone on their property legally. The blame for the accident could also fall on the homeowner if they installed the satellite dish themselves and did the job incorrectly.

But it is important to note that there could be other responsible parties. If a service or professional installer installed the satellite dish, they could be liable for injuries caused by a faulty installation. In addition, if a cable or internet company representative installed the unit, they could be responsible. And there is always the potential for the mounting bracket or satellite dish housing to be defective. In these cases, the manufacturer of the failed part could share the liability for injuries caused by the falling satellite dish.

Can I Sue For A Falling Satellite Dish Injury?

In order to sue for injuries you suffered, your legal team must typically demonstrate that negligence was the reason for your injury. And because the satellite dish fell from the roof, there is a good possibility that the installation was faulty, the equipment used to mount the unit was defective or damaged, or the roof was unfit. In all these cases, someone was negligent in the installation process or chose to mount the satellite dish to the roof, and you could have reason to seek compensation for your injuries with a falling satellite dish injury lawsuit. The falling satellite dish injury accident attorneys at DTLA Law Group are ready to meet with you for a free consultation to help you determine if you have grounds for a lawsuit and explain how to proceed if you sue for your damages and losses.

What Is The Potential Value Of My Falling Satellite Dish Injury Accident Lawsuit?

The value of any personal injury lawsuit is determined by compiling the victim’s allowable expenses and losses. There are no predetermined amounts for injuries or specific accidents. So, you will work with the expert legal staff at DTLA Law Group to gather documentation and receipts to calculate and support the amount you seek in your lawsuit claim.

The most common items included in a personal injury claim are:

  • All current and future medical expenses related to the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of the injuries suffered during the falling satellite dish accident
  • The value of any personal property that was damaged or destroyed due to the falling satellite dish incident
  • Your lost wages if the injuries you sustained prevented you from working until you were fully recovered
  • Legal expenses and fees from the DTLA Law Group for the preparation and litigation of your falling satellite dish injury lawsuit

If the injuries you suffered were severe and required an extended recovery time, it is possible to include a dollar amount to compensate you for the pain and suffering you endured because of your injuries. This amount is most often determined with the help of your legal team because it is not supported by any documentation or expenses incurred. Instead, your legal experts will base the amount recommended on previous claims they handled involving similar injuries and recovery details.

When To File My Falling Satellite Dish Injury Accident Lawsuit

In California, personal injury victims have two years from the date of their injuries to file a claim with the court. If the case is not filed with the court when the Statute of Limitations expires in two years, the victim almost always loses the right to seek compensation for damages from that event. If any exceptions to this time apply to your case, the DTLA Law Group staff will explain why they could benefit your case and the outcome.
