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.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
