Balcony Falls and Structural Problems
In many instances, balcony falls are the result of structural problems with the balcony itself. Wooden balconies may have undetected rot. The safe weight load may have been incorrectly calculated. The bolts may have rusted and become weakened. Railings may be broken or defective. The railing may not be high enough to prevent children from climbing. It may not meet building codes.
