Thousands of people slip and trip on stairs every year, and injuries are common—broken bones, sprains, concussions and spinal damage. While people do simply lose their footing, if a staircase hasn’t been properly maintained, the property owner is at fault. And why should you pay the price for someone else’s irresponsibility? Hinkle Law Offices, P.C. can help.
Liability for Slip & Fall Injuries on Stairs
Stairs present complications that sidewalks and floors don’t, simply because of how they’re designed. However, if a staircase is being properly maintained and was built to code, it isn’t inherently dangerous. If a building’s owner has made no effort to keep a staircase safe and you’re injured because of a fall, they’re liable for your injuries.
If stairs are:
- Not marked as “wet floor”
- Lacking handrails
- Cracked or broken
- Have improper height or depth
- Poorly maintained
Then the building owner has legally caused your injuries. You shouldn’t have to pay thousands of dollars for medical care or deal with the financial burden of lost wages. Don’t let someone else’s negligence drain your resources!
