Porch & Balcony Defects

Illinois Porch & Balcony Collapse Attorneys

Chicago Premises Liability Lawyers

Porches and balconies are a common, and often desirable, fixture of Chicago’s homes and apartments.  Unfortunately, poorly constructed porches and balconies can cause dangerous accidents, resulting in serious injuries, paralysis or death.  Property owners and management companies have a duty to maintain safe porches and balconies and they may be held liable under premises liability for those accidents that occur in a porch or balcony collapse.  

If you or someone you love has been involved in a porch or balcony accident, the Chicago personal injury attorneys at Ankin Law Offices can help you pursue a premises liability or wrongful death claim.  

Many of Chicago’s porches and balconies are on older buildings, making them more susceptible to collapses due to years of strain and possibly inadequate maintenance.  

Porch and balcony collapses can be caused by several factors, such as:

Premises liability and wrongful death cases involve complex legal issue and are very fact-specific. The Chicago premises liability attorneys at Ankin Law Offices will conduct a thorough investigation of the accident, including examining inspection reports and maintenance records, and consulting with architects and building engineers, in order to evaluate the facts surrounding your porch or balcony accident.
