San Diego Porch Collapse Lawyers
Property owners and managers are required to do whatever it takes to ensure their property is safe and free of any hazards that could potentially harm visitors or guests to that property. Unfortunately, many property owners fail to uphold this responsibility and through their negligence, put innocent people in harm’s way. One unfortunately common example of this is when property owners fail to properly upkeep structures like porches and decks, and these structures collapse while others are standing on them.
When porches are either poorly made or maintained, they could collapse and cause devastating injuries. If you or someone you know has been injured in a porch collapse accident, you should not be left paying for your injury-related expenses on your own. Contact the San Diego porch collapse lawyers of Ritter & Associates at (619) 296-0123 for the legal assistance and representation you need at this time.
How We Can Help
Property owners are required to adhere to certain building codes when constructing a porch to ensure it is built properly and safely. If individuals do not meet these requirements or if they fail to fix any damages or other hazards, unsuspecting visitors could suffer devastating injuries. If you were injured in a porch, deck, or balcony collapse accident, you may be eligible for compensation from the responsible property owner for the following losses:
- Medical bills
- Prescriptions and rehabilitation
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death (if you lost a loved one)
Not only can a successful premises liability lawsuit help you secure the compensation you need for your accident-related losses, but it can also protect others from suffering injuries similar to yours.
