Collapsed Porch and Deck Attorneys
Premises liability is a branch of tort law that handles injuries that occur on another person or business’ premises. Property owners are responsible for ensuring that their property is safe, and that all hidden dangers are adequately warned against. When property owners fail to maintain their grounds, one of the most dangerous accidents that can occur is porch or deck collapse.
If you or someone you know has been wrongfully injured because a property owner failed to maintain their property, you may be entitled compensation for your losses. Contact the Tallahassee personal injury lawyers of the Moye Law Firm to discuss your legal options.

Structurally Unsafe Porches and Decks
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, a experienced porch collapse attorney from our firm can help you find answers.
