A property owner or manager has a strict responsibility to adequately inspect and maintain any porch spaces attached to their buildings. Porches need to have their supports and connectors checked regularly, as these pieces can wear down quickly over time. Failure to keep up with the maintenance demands of a porch may contribute to the porch collapsing, potentially injuring anyone on or underneath the porch. In the event of such an accident, those who are hurt may be able to seek financial compensation to address related damages.
Do not allow a property owner’s negligence to go unpunished if you have suffered injuries in a porch collapse that could have been prevented.
