Causes of Stairwell Accidents
Stairwell accidents can happen to anyone. Every six minutes a child is rushed to the emergency room for a stairwell accident. Among the elderly, 70 percent of hospitalizations are due to falls from stairs. Over 20,000 construction workers are injured from stair and ladder falls each year.
There are many reasons accidents and injuries occur in on stairs. Some might assume that the victim is to blame, but stairway falls are frequently the result of missing, loose, or broken handrails; slick, broken, or uneven steps; and poor lighting or improperly marked steps. Maintenance, repair, and basic security measures are the responsibility of property owners. When property and premises owners fail to maintain the safety and security of their stairwells, they can be found reckless or negligent and held liable for injuries due to stairwell accidents.

Stairwell Accident Claims
Victims of stairway falls face emergency room and ongoing medical care costs, rehabilitation, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Whether the fall occurred at a department store, restaurant, hotel, hospital, construction site, or government building, the property owner may be held responsible for accidents and injuries. It is important to notice and document the condition of the stairwell, recording broken light bulbs, missing handrails, wet floors, and any other hazard.
