If you or your loved ones were hurt or injured due to falling on defective or damaged stairways or steps, you have every right to demand proper financial compensation for any injuries, medical bills, lost wages, suffering, pain as well as any other expense that you were forced to deal with because of the incident. In most states, the owner of commercial or residential property is legally obliged to make sure that his or her residents or visitors are safe. In case the owner is aware of potential risks and dangers, he or she is obliged to fix those risks or at the very least warn you about them. A qualified as well as experienced slip and fall attorney will be able to help you.
Injuries That Were Induced Due To Defective or Broken Curbs or Stairs

- The stairway was cluttered, covered in liquids, debris or garbage
- Some instruments, materials or tools were left on the stairs by some other company (construction company or the like)
- Missing or inadequate guard rails as well as handrails
