Stair Accidents

Surprisingly, the staircase can be one of the most dangerous areas of the house, especially for the elderly, small children, and the handicapped. Furthermore, they open the door not only for serious injury, but liability claims as well. If you are injured while on someone else’s staircase – whether it belongs to an individual or a business – you may be owed compensation for your injuries.

However, premises liability can be an extremely complex issue, and determining the extent of liability can be difficult or impossible without the help of an experienced Cincinnati personal injury lawyer.

There are several factors that can create liability in the case of a stair accident. If the stairs are not well lit, it creates a hazardous condition, since seeing where you are going is difficult in low lighting. Furthermore, cluttered or obstructed stairs also present a hazard, especially in places of business. The lack of sufficient handrails may also present a liability issue, as may the improper maintenance of the steps in order to prevent rough or loose surfaces. Typically, the property owner must know, or should know, of these hazards before they can be considered liable.
