Kankakee Porch Collapse Lawyer
Porch collapses are potentially deadly disasters that result in thousands of personal injury claims every year, and enormous costs in the form of associated medical expenses. All property owners are passively responsible for the safety and well-being of their guests, customers, and anyone else who may be on their property. Accordingly, they have an obligation to ensure that structures are properly constructed and adequately maintained, and they may be found to be legally liable if they fail in this responsibility.
If you have suffered an injury in a porch collapse accident, it is important for you to seek legal counsel regarding the possible merits of a civil lawsuit. To learn more about your legal rights and options contact the dedicated Kankakee porch collapse attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C., by calling (815) 929-9292 to discuss your situation with a skilled and experienced lawyer.
Causes of Porch Collapse
A properly constructed and maintained porch or balcony will function indefinitely under normal circumstances, but the following problems may lead to a catastrophic accident:
- Foundation deterioration
- Faulty hardware and fasteners
- Non-code construction practices
- Rotted out materials, most commonly wood
There are many hazards associated with a porch collapse. The force of the fall itself may be enough to cause life-altering injury, but the potential for being crushed, impaled, or otherwise caught up in the incident virtually guarantees that one will be left with extensive medical bills through no fault of his or her own.
