Causes of Deck Collapses

Common causes of deck collapses are:

  • Inadequate inspections
  • Wear and tear of the structure over time; joist failure
  • Rotten wood; insect damage
  • Weather exposure that decreases the integrity of the structure
  • Railings and guards that are inadequate
  • Not building the deck to code
  • Putting too much weight on the deck including too many people
  • Failure of the deck ledger (rim board attached to the house)

Investigating The Cause of a Deck Collapse

The cause of a deck collapse is not always immediately known. One important way that we represent your interests is by determining what happened to cause the incident. We do this by undertaking accident reconstruction and working with experts to examine the evidence. We also pour through maintenance records, witness statements, prior incident reports and complaints to put an entire picture together of what caused the deck collapse.

Can You Receive Compensation If You’re Hurt by a Deck Collapse?

Whether you’re hurt by a collapsing deck, balcony, railing, landing or porch, you may receive compensation if the crash was the result of negligence. The property owner must have acted negligently either by allowing the structure to fall into disrepair, building it poorly or allowing a dangerous condition to exist in another way, and the owner knew or should have known about it. Property owners have the highest duty of care towards invitees which include customers and guests at business establishments.

What is the legal basis for compensation for a deck collapse?

The legal basis for deck collapse compensation is that the property owner or manager was at fault for allowing the deck collapse to occur. Legal standards are based on negligence. The exact level of legal duty depends on the reason the victim was on the property.

If you’re hurt in a deck collapse on someone else’s property, you shouldn’t have to suffer without compensation. Contact us at (843) 417-9978 to explore the legal standards in your case and how you may receive compensation.
