Man Lying On Staircase After Slip And Fall Accident, Broken Stairs/Unmarked Step Downs Injury Lawyer

Broken Stairs/Unmarked Step Downs Injury Lawyer

A tumble down a flight of stairs or even tripping on an unmarked step can be extremely dangerous. Falls on stairways or steps can cause broken bones, spine/back issues or head trauma, requiring medical care and recovery. Property owners are obligated to maintain safe stairways and alert visitors to dangerous areas to avoid injuries. When a broken stair or unmarked step causes a fall accident, the property owner may be liable for injuries.

Under premises liability regulations, all property owners must keep safety in mind when inviting anyone to enter their property. It is expected they will provide reasonable safety for guests allowed on their property. This includes repairing dangerous structures or providing warning of a dangerous area. If the owner knew a stair was broken and did not fix it, they did not provide reasonable safety for their guests. The same is true of a tripping hazard if it is foreseeable that someone may not see a step down and fall. A warning should be given to prevent falls.

Premises Liability Claims for Stair Injuries

Business owners and homeowners can be liable for injuries that occur due to unsafe conditions on their property. A broken or faulty stair that causes a fall or an unmarked step down that trips a guest can result in serious injuries. Victims of these accidents can pursue a premises liability claim against the owner of the property. In most cases, the claim is paid by the property owner’s liability insurance. It is important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer who can fight to obtain the highest compensation for your claim.
