Porch and Balcony Defects


Many of Chicago’s apartments and homes are attached with a porch or balcony. While they can add great aesthetics to your home, they can cause serious accidents that can result in critical injuries, if they are poorly constructed. Property owners and management companies of the building may be held liable for any accidents that a faulty porch or balcony caused them.
There are numerous reasons why a porch or balcony accident occurs, including:

  • Too much weight
  • Building code violations
  • Rotting wood
  • Design defects
  • Rusty nails/ fasteners
  • Weak support system
