Trustworthy Bronx Attorneys for Stairway Accidents

Accidents often occur on stairways as a result of negligent construction and/or maintenance of the stairs by the property owners.  Common reasons for stairway accidents include:

  • broken or cracked steps
  • non-uniform riser heights (i.e., the height between steps)
  • non-uniform tread widths (i.e., the width of each step)
  • lack of handrail
  • inadequate handrail
  • unstable steps
  • inadequate landing area
  • poor lighting

These cases often require proper investigation from the outset, inclusive of photographs and an inspection of the stairway by a professional engineer and/or safety expert.  Jason Shapiro, founder of Shapiro Law Offices, PLLC, devotes an in-depth discussion in his textbook, The Lawyers' Guide to Personal Injury Law, to properly handling stairway accident cases.  Shapiro Law Offices, PLLC has a high level of expertise in handling these types of cases, and has obtained multi-million dollar awards as a result.
