Stair collapses are extremely dangerous events that can cause very serious injuries for anyone involved. These collapses are often entirely preventable, which makes their frequency even more alarming. Property owners or their authorized agents have a responsibility to ensure that stairs are properly monitored and maintained, and the failure to do so may warrant a civil lawsuit if guests suffer harm as a consequence.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in a stair collapse incident, there may be financial compensation available to address the costs of medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, and lost wages.
