Premises Liability and Stair Collapse

Countless individuals use the stairs every day without giving it much thought. Despite how common they are, stairs can be extremely dangerous if property owners fail to properly maintain them. When they are not maintained, staircases may collapse, leading to severe injuries for victims. Not only may individuals be left with the physical recovery of these accidents, but financial stress is also likely to occur due to extensive medical bills and lost wages.

Common Stair Collapse Injuries

When an individual is injured as the result of a staircase collapse, the injuries can be catastrophic. Some of the most common and severe injuries resulting from a stair collapse include:

• Head/Brain Injuries
• Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
• Neck Injuries
• Lacerations
• Paralysis
• Fractures or Broken Bones
• Internal Bleeding

Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises safe for visitors and workers. However, not all property owners meet this responsibility. Fortunately, property owners can often be held accountable for these accidents and be required to pay out to victims for their injuries.
