When Is a Property Owner Responsible for Personal Injuries From a Defective Stairway?

Maintenance to avoid stairway or step accidents, is about more than just making a store, house, building, office, hotel, shopping malls, movie theaters, restaurants, grocery stores or any other building or space comfortable and visually appealing to tenants, visitors, customers or guests when they visit such establishments. The property owners, managers and maintenance people must ensure the safety of people as they move throughout their property. Houses and buildings must be free of broken stairs, stairways, and steps, and those responsible for the premises, must make sure that they are free of defects that could cause someone to slip/trip and fall, or otherwise get injured, including making sure stairways, steps, and adjoining building and street areas are not cracked, broken, or in some way, defective. Places with stairways, where pedestrians are invited to walk, no matter what type of area it is, whether it be a stairway in a shopping mall, a parking garage, office building, private home, and all other areas where invited pedestrians utilize stairs, must be free from slippery and/or wet substances which must be immediately adequately marked and cleaned. Included in these areas to be maintained by the establishment’s owners and managers, are the stairs and stairways, which must remain free of clutter, and stairways must be well-lit, secure, and properly maintained.

When any pedestrian stairway/staircase on a property is not properly built or it is not maintained in a safe condition, the property owner is responsible for the injuries sustained by anyone who slip/trips and falls or otherwise gets injured and sustain a serious personal injury, whatever the cause, such as missing, improperly laid, or damaged carpet. Each personal injury lawyer at Birzon and Associates, is an expert in stairway accident liability law, and they will gather your accident and injury information to investigate your personal injury claim, and then build and support those claims on your behalf or on behalf of a loved one — whether the accident occurred, while you were walking on public, private, commercial or government owned and operated property.

Our law firm has represented pedestrians in all types of accidents, including accidents that may in some way be connected to a construction site – or that happened, while you were a walking in an airport, public transit center, bus stop, or train/subway station. Pedestrian accidents are often the result of slipping and falling on icy steps or on a wet or greasy spot or area on a store staircase. Common types of stairs and step related injuries often occur when a person who is lawfully climbing a stairs at a premises, is caused to trip over uneven steps built at improper heights, damaged carpets, and/or damaged flooring and steps.

It is well known that Stairway/stair fall accidents are one of the most common causes of serious injury among the elderly who, often, with their fragile bones, break their hips and sustain other serious injuries, often requiring surgery.

In stairway and step accident cases, those in charge of the premises, could be liable for your damages, if they knew of the negligent condition(s), or by exercising due diligence, they should have known that a dangerous condition and/or defect existed, and that their failure to properly repair it in a timely manner, make they liable for your injuries that you sustained as a result of your stairway fall or other injury.
