Legal help for Florida residents injured in unsafe stairwells

Any kind of slip, trip or fall could result in serious injuries, but falls inside stairwells can be especially dangerous. It is difficult to regain control of one's body while plummeting down a set of stairs. Victims are at risk for broken bones, neck or head injuries and even internal injuries.

Most property owners and landlords in Florida provide a safe environment for guests and visitors. However, if a stairwell is not properly maintained on a regular basis, hazards can arise that endanger the buildings occupants. Stairways, stairwells and even outdoor steps can contain many hazards. A few examples of these include:

  • Defective or missing handrails and guardrails
  • Narrow stairways and tread depths
  • Broken, worn or collapsing stairs and treads
  • Obstructions on stairs and in stairwells
  • Uneven stairs
  • Slippery steps and treads
  • Wet or icy stairs and stairwells
  • Stairs that are too high

We want you to understand that property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably free of hazards. If they fail to live up to this duty, victims may hold them legally responsible in a premises liability action. A successful legal remedy will give victims the financial means to get the right medical care while also replacing lost wages from missed work.

The next time you approach a set of stairs, look closely for any potential hazards. If you do not notice anything amiss yet still suffer from injuries incurred in or on the stairway area, consider your legal options carefully.
