Sometimes, the simplest of actions can lead to a devastating accident and a life-changing injury. A flight of stairs is an often-overlooked hazard. After all, from apartment complexes and homes to office buildings, hotels and shopping malls, using the stairs is a normal, everyday occurrence for many people. No matter how many times they go up and down the stairs, accidents can happen to anyone, at any time. If an accident happens to you, having a good lawyer on your side can make all the difference. Stair accidents carry a high risk of serious personal injury or even death in some cases – a fact made more frightening by the realization that building managers too often neglect to follow proper safety protocols for stairways.
