People rely on sturdy handrails to help them up and down stairways. The lack of dependable handrails can result in serious falls that may lead to broken bones, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries and back injuries, among others. It is the responsibility of the property owner or superintendent to ensure that working handrails are installed in all stairways as required by law.
If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury due to the negligent repair or installation of a handrail, you may be entitled to seek damages from the responsible parties. Be sure that you have an experienced Chicago premises liability lawyer on your side who understands the law and will fight to protect your interests.
Outdoor handrails are especially important in the Chicago area where snow and ice can often make it difficult to get up and down stairs. Discuss your case with one of the Chicago broken handrail fall accident lawyers at The Horwitz Law Group to learn more about your rights and how we can help you.
When handrails are old, broken or were never installed, it puts everyone who uses the stairway at serious risk of injury.
