Stairways are a convenient and efficient way for people to travel between floors in homes, businesses, and other types of building. Like any other part of a structure, in order for stairways to work properly and safely, they must be well designed, constructed, and maintained. If these requirements are not met, stairways can pose a significant risk of injury to those who use them.
If you have been injured in an accident involving a defective stairway, you shouldn’t have to suffer any longer because of someone else’s negligent actions.

Common Stairway Defects
Stairways can deteriorate over time from wear and tear, termites, and other forms of damage. If a property owner fails to make repairs on his or her stairways, guests or patrons could suffer a serious injury. Common stairway defects include the following:
- Missing or rotten floorboards
- Dangerously steep stairs
- Missing or damaged handrails
These are only a few of the many potential stairway defects that could potentially cause a serious injury.
