Porch Collapse Injuries
When a porch is in disrepair that is obvious to the homeowner or overloaded with furniture and people, it may be in danger of a collapse. Restaurants, in particular, often like to seat patrons outside during the warmer months of the year, and if they violate load limits, the consequences can be devastating. The following are representative of the kinds of injuries that a porch collapse victim might sustain:
- Severe lacerations and contusions
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Amputations due to crush injuries
Tragically, in the worst case, an innocent party might be killed in a porch collapse accident. It is important that you properly understand your legal rights and the potential merits of legal action in this difficult time.
