Who is Liable for a Stairwell Slip and Fall Accident in Los Angeles?

If you suffer an injury in a stairwell slip and fall, you could be entitled to compensation if you can establish that another party’s negligence was responsible. Often, that involves a claim against the owner or manager of the building in question. Slip and fall accidents are one of the leading causes of injury in the United States. Falls that occur on stairways can be especially dangerous. Usually, the greater the height a person falls from, the more severe the damage.

If you have questions about your right to pursue compensation after a stairway fall, seek out experienced legal counsel right away. A personal injury attorney from Salamati Law could review your case and advise you of your rights.

How Stairway Falls Occur

Often, multiple factors will combine to cause a fall. Many of them occur due to poor maintenance. Loose steps and broken handrails routinely lead to individuals losing their balance. Unsecured carpet or debris are also common tripping hazards. Even inadequate lighting has the potential to lead to a slip and fall down stairs.

If you have suffered an injury, you should address your medical needs first. Once your condition is stable, let your attorney review the facts of the accident. Determining how it happened could help identify the party responsible for your injuries.

It might be possible to pursue a claim against the designer or manufacturer under a strict liability standard. This standard is much easier to meet than negligence.
