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.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

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.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
