Stair Collapse Accidents

An incident involving structural collapse of a staircase has the potential to leave anyone on or near the structure with serious injuries. Unfortunately, those who suffer injuries in stair collapse accidents must endure the subsequent pain and financial burdens involved. Many situations involving stair collapse are often the result of a property owner’s negligence. As such, Massachusetts victims in similar situations can be compensated for any pain and suffering involved with their stair collapse injuries.

The attorneys of Crowe & Mulvey, LLP have years of experience assisting clients with personal injury law – including, but not limited to, cases involving stair collapse – and can help Massachusetts victims better understand their legal options after such a traumatic incident.

Common Causes of Stair Collapse

Stair collapse can result from numerous conditions, many of which are the responsibility of a property owner. For instance, structural collapse can stem from any of the following:

  • Overcrowding on stairs
  • Improper construction of stairs
  • Improper maintenance of stairs

A property owner might be held legally and financially responsible for any injury that results from these negligent actions, as a personal injury attorney may tell you.
