A structurally unsound porch can result in severe injuries to both the property owner and guests. Porches, balconies, and decks do not have foundations and therefore have the potential to collapse. Porches, balconies, and decks are limited in the amount of weight they can safely hold. If too many people are standing on one of these structures, it will collapse.
Multiple parties may be liable for injuries and losses. These can include:
- The Property Owner
