Case Summary: The plaintiff suffered serious injuries to his leg and back when he fell through rotted floor boards on a deck at his house. He had just purchased the home and moved in. A condition of the sale was that the seller would have a contractor replace all of the rotted material on the deck. The contractor left much of the rotted material and painted over it. At my site inspection I discovered and reported on the unsafe condition of the raised deck. My opinion was that the wood rot was readily observable and that the contractor failed in his duties. The case settled requiring the contractor to make a payment to the injured party.
