Chicago Stairway Defect Injury Lawyers

Defective or poorly maintained stairways present an extremely serious hazard to the people who use them. Loose flooring, rotted boards and other code violations can create conditions that open the door to serious accidents. Property owners have the responsibility to maintain stairways in a manner that eliminates the chance of an injury.

At The Horwitz Law Group, we represent clients throughout the Chicago area in all types of premises liability cases involving unsafe stairways. Each one of our Chicago premises liability lawyers has helped countless people to secure the necessary compensation to recover from injuries suffered due to the negligent maintenance of stairways.

Our Chicago Stairway Defect Injury Attorneys Provide a Free Case Evaluation to Determine if You Have a Viable Claim Against a Property Owner.

We will give you an honest assessment of your case and explain your legal options. Contact us to schedule your free initial consultation.

There are standards for existing indoor and outdoor stairways that must be met under the Chicago Building Code. These include the stairs being free from rotting, loose or deteriorating supports and free from holes, grooves and cracks large enough to present a hazard. In addition, every stair tread must be strong enough to support a 400-pound load, must be adequately level and riser heights must be uniform.

When you hire our firm, we will conduct a complete investigation into your case. We will look at inspection and maintenance records, inspect and photograph the stairs and gather any other evidence that could help to strengthen your case. We seek to hold the negligent parties accountable for your injuries and pursue fair compensation on your behalf.

To discuss your defective stairway injury claim with a lawyer, please contact The Horwitz Law Group.
