Falls Can Lead To Broken Bones, Brain Injuries Or Spinal Injuries
Falling on steps can cause serious injuries. When people slip or trip and fall, they can hit their heads and suffer Traumatic Brain Injuries. They may also fall and suffer back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, knee injuries and shoulder injuries. Injury victims will need compensation for medical expenses and additional losses.
Accidents can happen on interior and exterior stairs. Some of the most common causes of accidents and injuries include:
- Missing handrails
- Slippery surface
- Broken steps
- Ripped or bunched carpet
- Water, snow or ice
- Stairway collapse
- Negligent security
In any premises liability case, it is necessary to show that the property owner knew or should have known about the hazardous conditions and did not take action to correct or guard against them. Our Rhode Island lawyers will thoroughly examine the case to determine who is liable for your losses.
