Slip or trip and fall injuries are among the most common reasons for personal injury claims. When these accidents occur on or near staircases, the injuries suffered by victims can be multiplied. Young children and senior citizens are particularly vulnerable to stair-related injuries, but they can happen to anyone when buildings are poorly built or maintained.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury on a negligently maintained piece of property, you could have grounds for pursuing legal compensation. Your Iowa personal injury attorneys LaMarca Law Group, P.C. will carefully research, construct, and present your case. Call our offices at (515) 705-0233.
A stair-related injury can be caused in many different ways. You may want to discuss your case with your Iowa lawyers if you or a member of your family has been injured by conditions such as:
- Poorly designed stairs (not properly attached to the landing, unable to support a reasonable amount of weight, unreasonably steep, etc)
- Unmaintained stairs (rusted metal or rotting wood, loose steps, jutting splinters creating a risk of tripping, etc)
- Failure to maintain a clear area around the stairs (clutter on the landing or steps creating a tripping hazard, slick spills near the steps that have not been cleaned, etc)
A fall on a staircase can have major consequences for innocent victims, including head injuries, spinal cord damage, bone fractures, and even coma or death. If you or a loved one has suffered from one party’s failure to maintain a safe environment, you do not have to deal with the consequences alone.
