Stairway Accidents

In a typical year in the United States, more than 1,300 people lose their lives and many thousands more are injured in falls on defective steps and staircases, ranking us number one in the world for stairway accidents.* In many cases, the injured party is either old or a young child, and, too often, the fall could have been prevented if the stairs and railings had been properly constructed or maintained.

Through lien reduction strategies, trusts and other instruments, we can help you retain control over a larger portion of your settlement than other litigation firms may be able to do.
