Stairway Collapse and Stairway Accident
Stairway collapse and stairway accidents commonly result in severe personal injury, or death. Stairways that are not properly maintained and repaired, or not well constructed, can collapse or break and cause serious and permanent injuries.
If a stairway accident occurred because of the owner’s failure to maintain the stairway or because of poor construction, then the property owner may be liable for you are a loved one’s injuries. Cases where a property owner may be liable for a victim’s injuries fall into the legal realm of premises liability. It may be in your best interest to contact an injury lawyer experienced in cases specializing in premises liability to know your rights.
