Injured in a Staircase Accident?

Call Our New York City Premises Accident Lawyers

New Yorkers walk up and down staircases every day — on their way to work, to their home, or going to a friend’s house. When a person sustains an injury because of a staircase defect or hazard, they may have the right to pursue compensation against the owner of the property where the stairs are located. Unfortunately, staircase accidents are far too common and they can be serious enough to cause brain damage, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, paralysis and more. If something like this happens to you or someone you know, it is important to reach out to a skilled New York City premises accident attorney who can work with you, gather the details of the incident, and guide you through the entire process.

Proving Your Case

When someone is injured in a staircase accident the victim must be able to prove that the premises owner’s negligence caused or contributed to your injuries. Whether the cause of the staircase accident was a broken guardrail or handrail, cuts in the rug, bad lighting, or broken wood, a New York City premises liability lawyer at the Perecman Firm can help you identify your legal rights and options, and how best to pursue a claim for compensation.

To prove a staircase accident case, you must show one of the following to be true:

  • The owner or landlord knew of a dangerous condition or defect but did not take the necessary steps to remedy the situation and prevent injury
  • The owner or landlord caused or created the dangerous condition or defect
  • The owner or landlord reasonably should have known about the potential danger because it was their job to do so

It is the responsibility of property owners and landlords to make sure staircases abide by regulations set forth by the New York Building Code to ensure the safety of all patrons or residents. If something goes wrong and someone is injured, the property owner may be held accountable for damages sustained by the victim.

We Help You Seek the Compensation You Need

If you are injured, you may be able to seek compensation for damages including, but not limited to, pain and suffering, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost income from being unable to work, future lost wages if permanently disabled, and more. To fully understand your situation and learn what kind of compensation you may be able to recover contact one of the experienced and knowledgeable attorneys at The Perecman Firm. The attorneys at the Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. have the knowledge, experience, and skill you will need to move forward with your claim. We will gather the evidence necessary to put together a strong case on your behalf and work to hold the negligent party accountable under the law. We will stand by your side.
