Improperly Maintained Stairways
Apartment complexes and businesses such as stores and hotels all have stairways to get up and down for customers and other visitors.
Often, these stores are loose, broken or have other obstructions that can lead to an injury for an unsuspecting individual.
Improperly maintained stairways can be a risk and hazard that requires a premises liability lawyer like Shaw Law to help you gather all of the evidence that you will need in order to get prevail on a claim.
At Shaw Law, we the latest discovery techniques, such as depositions (out-of-court sworn statements) of employees, Google Earth maps, videos, site inspections and court-issued subpoenas to acquire a detailed explanation of how the injury occurred and what could have been done to prevent it.
Stairways and all other structures on someone's property should always be maintained appropriately in order to decrease the chances of a serious accident. When a person slips and falls or trips and falls and gets hurt in Indiana, you might be eligible to pursue compensation against the property owner.
Trying to accept a settlement amount presented by the property owner at the time of the incident or shortly thereafter means that there is a good chance you don't understand all of the unique facets of your case and how this might translate into compensation for you. Improperly maintained stairways are a serious risk for falls. People rely on even stairways with appropriate handrails to negotiate up and down.
Although certain people are more vulnerable to injuries on stairways including children, the disabled and the elderly, anyone can slip and fall or trip and fall on a stairway and can suffer devastating injuries as a result. You might not even realize the full extent of your injuries until you have already gone to the hospital to obtain a diagnosis.
You might be dealing with a TBI, broken bones, internal organ damage, fractures or more. In these cases, it is likely necessary for you to hire an Indiana improperly maintained stairways lawyer to help you to pursue compensation against the relevant party. The relevant party might be someone who had responsibility for keeping that area free and clear of risks and instead exposed you to dangerous medical conditions and lost time at work.
You need to gather all of the evidence associated with your case and presented directly to an Indiana improperly maintained stairways lawyer. If you can show that the risk of possible injury was evident and that the property owner or manager took no steps to correct this action or to warn others about the possibility of tripping and falling, this information might become crucial in your decision to move forward with an accident claim.
