Stairway Defects Can Lead To Severe Injury

Some of the most dangerous accidents occur when a person slips or falls down a stairway or staircase. A person who falls down a set of stairs may suffer severe and serious injury, including fractures and broken bones. When an individual is injured from a stairway fall, it is imperative that the staircase in question be examined by a professional to determine if a stairway defect is at fault. A skilled Chicago personal injury lawyer will examine factors such as inadequate lighting, distance between landings, unsafe handrails, and inadequate stair surfaces when evaluating a premises liability or stairway defect case. Under the Chicago Building Code, both indoor and outdoor stairways must comply with certain standards. The stairway defect lawyers at The Horwitz Law Group will thoroughly investigate your case and will aggressively pursue the compensation you deserve.
