Stairway accident cases fall within a category most people know as "trip and fall" or "slip and fall" cases. Stairway accident cases usually arise out of one of three issues:
1. the design of the stairway;
2. the construction of the stairway; and
3. the maintenance of the stairway.
Falling or tripping on a stairway can also be caused by a combination of 2 or 3 of the above issues.
There are industry standards that apply to all of the above 3 areas. If you were injured in a stairway accident, you need someone who knows and is familiar with the industry standards to investigate the case. Further, the lawyer needs to know the standards in order to evaluate the stairway and see whether or not there is a claim against the owner or the person responsible for the maintenance of the stairway.
