Louisville Stair Collapse Attorneys

As is true of many things which become a part of daily life, it is easy for people to overlook the potential dangers associated with a staircase. When contractors build them adequately and property owners ensure that they are properly maintained, the threat that they pose to safety is effectively limited to the risk of falling down or off of them. However, when either a builder or property owner is negligent in their particular duties, it is possible for the stairs to collapse altogether, and these incidents are likely to cause severe injury to those who are on or underneath the stairs.

If you have been hurt due to the collapse of a stairway on another party’s property, it is important to ensure that you are fully aware of your legal rights and options in this difficult time. Contact the Louisville stair collapse attorneys of Sampson Law Firm by calling 502-584-5050 to discuss the potential merits of legal action and the financial compensation which you may be able to recover.

Potential Injuries from Stair Collapses

If a staircase has been improperly built or maintained after years of use, it could potentially collapse while people are walking on it. Even if only a single flight of stairs is present, a person may fall from a height of ten feet or more, resulting in a brutally violent impact. The following are representative of the kinds of injuries which one might sustain in a stair collapse accident:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Back, neck, and spinal cord injuries
  • Internal bleeding or organ damage
