Stairwell Accidents In New York City Are No Joke

If there’s one thing New York is known for, it’s tall the buildings with stories of stairs that can be highly dangerous. And those who suffer significant injuries from a fall need an experienced stairwell accident attorney.

At MJP Injury Law, our lawyers are experienced in all types of injury cases and represent those in the Bronx and throughout New York City. We have a reputation for having the strength and toughness that our clients want in their personal injury representation. We’re able to take on even the most complex of cases and fight for the financial support you need to manage the injury costs associated with your premises liability case.

Stairwell Problems Are Building Owner Liability

The basic understanding of premises liability is that the parties who own and maintain a building are largely responsible for the building’s safety. Every building owner or property manager must be proactive in safety, making sure that:

  • All stairs are in working order and not unstable
  • All railings are solid and secure
  • All lights are working and lit
  • Exits are clearly marked and accessible
  • All stairs are free from hazardous debris

It is not just skyscrapers that can have a dangerous stairwell. Smaller, residential, or mixed-use buildings often have staircases that lack proper safety measures.

The fact remains: there are many responsibilities at the feet of a building operator and owner and when they fail at that duty, people suffer. That’s why we take on these cases and fight for the people who come to us.
