Stairways are such a common fixture in buildings that we often take their safety for granted. We assume that when we use stairs to climb several stories above the ground that they are structurally sound. When a property owner or manager fails to properly maintain a building, however, a stairway can become a major safety hazard.
If you or a loved one has been hurt due to a defective or poorly maintained stairway, do not hesitate to contact the Wausau personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 to discuss your legal rights and options.
Stairway Accident Causes
A poorly maintained stairway will gradually become less sound over time, putting residents and visitors at risk of an accident. Many different defects may arise over time, such as:
- Warped floorboards
- Loose boards or railings
- Rotting boards
- Slippery or worn stairs
- Uneven stairs
When a stair defect leads to an accident, the property manager or owner may be liable for any injuries that occur as a result. Owners and managers have a responsibility to maintain their properties and to take reasonable care to protect visitors from harm. If you or someone you love has been injured in a stairway accident, our attorneys are prepared to provide the legal representation that you need to fight for compensation for your injuries and damages.
