Do I have a claim if I was injured from a faulty step?
I’ve handled several cases in which clients have fallen and injured themselves as a result of faulty stairs, and the question that they had for us at the initial phases of the case was, “Do I have a claim?” The answer is, if you feel or believe you have fallen as a result of defective stairs, it is important that you seek and retain an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible to find out. Additionally, it is important that you document or take photographs of the stairs upon which you fell as soon as possible.
There are a myriad of bases for liability for a landowner as a result of defective stairs. It may well be that the stairs were in disrepair. It may well be that the depth differential of the stairs are not up to the relevant building code. Again, it’s important that, if you feel you have sustained injury as a result of defective stairs, you retain an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. That experienced injury attorney will have access to experts who can ascertain whether the staircases were indeed dangerous as a matter of law.
