Apartment Didn't Repair Deck or Railway and My Guest Was Injured. What Can I Do?

In Lawrenceville, members of a wedding party were injured when a deck fell two stories. The wedding party, which included several children, were busy taking pictures for the special day when the deck they were standing on fell about 12 feet. Fire Officers who responded to the collapse said there were 15 to 18 people on the deck when it detached from the wood framed house. Five people were reported injured and admitted to the hospitals. Injuries were not life-threatening. Officers also reported that there appeared to be signs of termite damage that could have weakened the deck and caused it to collapse.
