What to know about injuries from faulty steps

We are often confronted with situations where clients of ours have been injured due to stairs that are constructed improperly or overtime have fallen to disrepair. It can be loose planks, it can be a rotten wood, or concrete because of the winters freeze and thaw catching loose chunks of it.

Other situations are when the stairs are not constructed properly, the rise or the run is not to code in situations like these where you would expect to have secured footing especially when you are going from one elevation to another and instead experience a very serious hazard on the stairway. Those structures in the building should be of the most secured and consistent for people to rely on because they involve a change of height.
