What Should I Do if Injured by a Fall Down the Stairs?

When a property owner’s negligence results in an injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. To obtain compensation, however, you will need representation from an experienced personal injury attorney. Premises liability claims are often challenging, but our firm has the experience you need.

People become injured on stairs for many reasons, including:

  • Broken steps
  • Slick or icy steps
  • Missing handrails
  • Stairway collapse
  • Defective stairway design/building code violation
  • Poor lighting
  • Debris on stairs

Slipping or tripping and falling on the stairs can cause serious injuries. Broken bones, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries are possible after a fall. Depending on the severity of your injury, you could suffer temporary or permanent disability. In the worst cases, a severe spinal cord or brain injury could result in wrongful death.

With our help, you may recover compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income, medical equipment and other related expenses. In wrongful death cases, you may also be able to collect damages for the loss of income the decedent would have earned and the loss of companionship.
