Staircase Accident Lawyer in NYC

Falls on stairways are often caused by code violations and other defects in the stairway. In these cases, the injured person may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses caused by the accident.

At The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny in Manhattan, our lawyers represent people throughout the New York City area who are injured due to unsafe property conditions, including unsafe stairways. If you or someone you love has been injured in a fall caused by a defect or unsafe condition in a stairway, call
(212) 421-0300 for a free initial consultation.

What Is An Unsafe Stairway?

A number of stairway conditions may be considered unsafe. Here are a few examples:

  • A loose or missing handrail
  • Unevenly spaced risers
  • Rotten, broken or missing steps
  • Poorly lit stairwells
  • Loose or damaged treads, edging, runners or carpeting

In one case handled by our firm, our clients fell down a set of subway stairs because she tripped on one of the steps. The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) paid the claim because our lawyers showed that raised metal edging on the step caused her to trip. The area of law that holds property owners accountable for injuries caused by unsafe conditions is known as premises liability.

It’s important to contact our attorneys as soon as possible after the accident, so we can document and present evidence of the unsafe stairway condition.
