Stairway Accidents

Stairway Accidents

In New York City, we have an exceptional amount of pedestrian traffic. All day long people walk along sidewalks and up and down stairways. Most people are in a rush to get where they are going and do not take the time to carefully evaluate every step they take.

It is human nature not to analyze each spot your foot will land, particularity on stairways. Your brain measures the first step and expects each additional step to cover the same distance. Unsafe conditions exist and many falls are the result of unsafe conditions.

Located in the heart of Manhattan, the New York slip-and-fall lawyers of Kahn Gordon Timko & Rodriques P.C., are dedicated to the practice of personal injury law. We work with injured clients to hold public entities, building owners and businesses accountable for irregular, broken, or otherwise unsafe stairways that cause accidents. Contact us to arrange a free consultation to discuss your claim.

Our Commitment to Public Safety: At our firm, we are dedicated to making our city a safer place to live and work. By holding parties accountable for unsafe conditions through personal injury lawsuits, we are essentially safeguarding others from having to experience the same trauma our clients have faced.

Endangering the Public Is Unacceptable

Sadly, a majority of stairway accidents are completely preventable. Although New York has very strict building codes, contractors and building owners sometimes choose to create stairways prone to accidents. Building owners may be aware of broken stairs and choose not to repair them, leaving danger for a serious trip and fall. Unnecessary danger to the public is unacceptable. Those responsible for acts of negligence leading to serious injury must be held accountable.

With more than 50 years of experience, our senior attorneys are prepared to help victims of stairway accidents recover full and fair compensation for their injuries, medical bills, lost wages and more.
