Pursuing a Porch Collapse Claim
Property owners are legally obligated to properly maintain their premises and, thereby, protect their guests from harm. Of particular importance, porches and balconies must be well-maintained in order to mitigate the possibility of structural failure. When a structural failure does occur, porch collapse accidents can be exceedingly dangerous and often result in serious injury for accident victims.
Property Conditions that Lead to Porch Collapse
When certain measures are not taken to properly maintain a premises, Atlanta property owners put their guests at an elevated risk of becoming involved in an accident. In particular, structures like porches may become susceptible to collapse when the following unsafe conditions are allowed to exist:
- Structural materials like wood have been allowed to rot
- Fastening materials like screws, nails, and bolts are allowed to rust
- The integrity of the structure’s foundation has been allowed to deteriorate
