The Danger of Stairs
Although stairs are an integral part of modern architecture, the damage that can be caused when there is a defect in workmanship or otherwise is often catastrophic. Whether you tripped or slipped and fell down the stairs, or the stairs themselves collapsed under you, faulty stairs can cause serious injury. We at the Goings Law Firm, LLC want to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your stair collapse accident if there was a negligent party involved.
Proving Liability in Stair Accident Cases
Stair collapse is generally the responsibility of the property owner, as they are expected to adequately maintain their property. You may have a premises liability case if at least one of the following is true:
- The property owner caused or created the conditions that led to your accident.
- The property owner knew about the conditions that led to your accident, but did nothing to remedy or remove them.
- The property owner should have known about the conditions that led to your accident and acted to remedy them, but didn’t.
In addition to physical injuries sustained during stair accidents, such as cuts, bruises, or broken bones, victims of stair collapse can suffer from various financial troubles as a result.
