Balcony, Deck and Porch Accidents

Most of us take pleasure in spending time on balconies, decks and porches at parties, barbeques, or just to enjoy scenery and the outdoors. Unfortunately, defective balconies, decks and porches are extremely dangerous and can lead to death or serious injuries. The railings or structure of balconies, decks and porches can be inadequate, causing devastating falls. These heavy structures can collapse, causing people to fall through and burying them underneath massive amounts of debris. Sometimes multiple persons are hurt in these types of accidents. They often occur at college parties when there are several people on the balcony, deck or porch. Usually people try to blame these tragedies on overcrowding, only to find out later that the real cause was a defective condition.

According to the North American Deck and Railing Association, 40 million decks in the United States are more than 20 years old. As this statistic shows, many people think that their decks will last forever and fail to properly maintain them. When property owners are negligent and fail to make sure that their premises are safe, they can be held liable.

If you or someone you know has been involved in a balcony, deck or porch accident, it is important to contact a premises liability lawyer right away. A lawyer can tell you whether or not you have a case, make sure that important evidence is preserved, and employ any experts that might be necessary to establish inadequacies and defects.
