Common Stair Collapse Injuries

Many public and private venues have staircases, giving people access to upper decks or floors. When built properly and maintained well, staircases provide safe and necessary ways to get from place to place, whether at a shopping mall, stadium or arena, restaurant, or someone else’s house. However, when the owners of the property fail to fulfill their legal responsibility to make sure that these staircases are safe for people to use, it can cause unsuspecting people to be seriously harmed. At the Sampson Law Firm, we are all too aware of the varied and devastating injuries such accidents in Louisville can cause.

Common Injuries Caused by Stair Collapses

Staircases can collapse due to poor construction, poor maintenance, or general negligence of the property owner (like overcrowding the staircase). These accidents can result in terrible injuries to visitors, such as:

  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Lacerations or contusions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries

Unfortunately, all of these injuries have a high possibility of occurring in a stair collapse accident. In many cases, a property owner could have taken charge earlier, making sure precautions were in place to prevent the collapse.
