Stairway Accidents

Las Vegas Stairway Accident Lawyer

Representing Clients Injured in Las Vegas Stairways

Stairways are in almost every building of every kind. Though most people think nothing of walking up and down staircases, accidents in stairways can result in serious injuries such as head injuries, back injuries, spine injuries, and broken bones.

Property owners have an obligation to make sure that their premises are safe and free from unreasonable hazards. Accordingly, when someone is in a stairway accident as a result of an unsafe or hazardous condition, the property owner or manager can be held liable for any resulting injuries or damages.

If you were in a stairway accident – whether at a hotel, casino, restaurant, office building, museum, hospital, school, or apartment building – you may be able to recover money damages for your injuries.

Causes of Stairway Accidents

Stairway accidents can happen for a number of reasons, but the following are some of the most common causes of stairway accidents:

  • Slippery steps
  • Loose or broken steps
  • Design flaws
  • Inadequate or defective railings
  • Inadequate lighting

The legal theory of premises liability says that property owners and operators have an obligation to keep their premises safe for customers, invited guests, and other individuals that pass through the property. Depending on the cause of the stairway accident, the property owner or manager could be held liable for the following:

  • Medical expenses (past and future)
  • Lost wages (past and future)
  • Household services
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
