Safety Tips to Navigate Starcases

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 severe injuries occur when traveling down a stairway than up.

Stairway Injury Cases Require Thorough Investigation

A fall down a flight of stairs can result in a victim suffering catastrophic or even fatal injuries. Stairway trips and falls are especially dangerous to individuals who are over the age of 60 or have certain preexisting conditions or injuries. When you fall down a stairway on property belonging to another (even if you are a tenant and the property is owned by a landlord), premises liability law may entitle you to compensation for your medical expenses and other losses you experience as a result of the accident.
