Millions of people suffer disabling injuries from accidents related to stairs and steps

In New York property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe for patrons, tenants and guests. A property owner may be liable for your injuries if the property owner was negligent, or created, or knew about a dangerous stairway condition and failed to correct it. For example, a property owner may be liable, if an accident occurs due to:

• broken, slanted, or worn-out steps;

• improper stair geometry, including uneven riser heights

and tread widths;

• uneven, broken, loose or missing handrails;

• poor stairway lighting conditions

• improperly repaired steps;

• stairs constructed in violation of the building code.

At Cohen & Cohen Law Group, P.C., we have the experience and resources to retain engineers and others, to document unsafe stairs that violate either the New York City Building Code, local codes or industry standards.

We have handled accidents involving falls from stairs which have resulted in serious fractures involving legs, ankles, wrists, and shoulders, often requiring surgery with internal fixation. We have successfully litigated many cases involving falls from steps. We have also successfully handled cases that other attorneys have refused or rejected.

You may be entitled to compensation for past and future pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages resulting from your fall.

At Cohen & Cohen Law Group, P.C., cases are handled on a contingency basis, which means you do not pay attorney's fees unless we recover compensation for you. If you were injured in a fall from a stairway contact us today for a free legal consultation.
