Lake Geneva Porch Collapse Attorneys

Porches and balconies offer a great place for people to gather during a social event or for individuals to relax while having morning coffee. As long as the structure of the porch or balcony is safe and sturdy, this should remain uneventful. Unfortunately, many porches and balconies are improperly built, or poorly maintained. These unstable porches, decks, and balconies are likely to collapse, posing a grave threat to the welfare of all persons who are on or underneath them at the time of the incident.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a porch collapse accident, we can help you to determine whether it may be appropriate to seek financial compensation through a legal action. Contact the Lake Geneva porch collapse attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.

Causes of Porch Collapses

Porch collapses can be caused by a number of different factors. They are more common in older homes and buildings that have been neglected, but they can also occur in newer homes due to poor construction. Moreover, any porch on a commercial property that is subjected to regular traffic can quickly become unsafe if not adequately maintained. Some of the reasons porches can suddenly collapse include:

  • Rusted fastening materials such as nails, screws, and bolts
  • Rotting or old wood
  • Foundation problems
  • Code violations
  • Excessive weight

Since porches often support large groups of people, it is important for their safety to be ensured by those responsible for the property, as a collapse could result in significant casualties.
