Staircase Safety Tips
I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Stairway Fall Lawyer. Falls account for an estimated 8.9 million visits to the emergency room each year and are the third leading cause of accidental deaths. Nearly 30,000 people die because of fall injuries each year. A 2012 study on childhood injuries found that nearly 100,000 children fall down the stairs each year. More serious injuries occur when traveling down a stairway than up.
