Structurally Unsafe Porches
While an individual may incur injuries from a vast array of accidents, unsound structures are one of the most common. Because porches, balconies, and decks do not have foundations, they have the potential to collapse. Frequently, these structures are supported by wooden posts, which can only remain stable under a certain amount of weight. If during a party or gathering numerous people are standing on one of these structures it may collapse, which can cause serious injuries.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, a number of people may be liable for injuries and losses, including the property owner, a contracted maintenance company, the primary renter, or a guest. If you have questions about your rights, an Oklahoma porch collapse attorney from our firm can help you find answers.
