Our Michigan fall injury lawyers represent clients who have suffered serious injuries from a fall down steps or a stairway. In many of these cases, the cause of the fall is a defective handrail or broken handrail next to the steps. These defects can present a very dangerous condition to the person walking down the steps.
A handrail that is broken or in disrepair is dangerous because it presents a false sense of safety to the person who is descending the staircase. When the handrail gives way or is loose, the person can stumble and lose balance and then literally tumble down the steps. The injuries from these falls are often serious, including broken bones, injuries to the back and neck, and even traumatic brain injuries.
Claims for Injuries Due to a Broken Stair Handrail
When a person suffers injuries from a fall due to a broken stair handrail, there is often a personal injury claim that can be filed against the owner or manager of the property. When this type of fall occurs in a rented property or in an apartment building, the landlord can be held in violation of state statute for failing to provide a safe stairway either in the apartment building or outside the building. The injured person file a lawsuit seeking damages for pain and suffering, disability, medical expenses, and lost wages.
