Wooden steps often crack from excessive force. In addition, cement steps with metal toe guards can cause a trip and fall when not properly maintained.
● Wet Step
Rain water or a spilled beverage can cause a slip and fall down the stairs.
● Dirty Step
If a property manager fails to maintain a staircase, they can be held financially responsible for any injury sustained in a fall.
● Missing or Broken Handrail
Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act, steps and staircases must be equipped with a secure handrail.
New York Labor Law § 240 imposes liability on employers and construction companies for ladder accidents on their property.
● Public or Private Staircase
Regardless of the owner or usage of a staircase, any defective condition causing a fall should be documented with photographs and a report to the property manager.
● Indoor & Outdoor Stairs
Property owners are responsible for safe maintenance of steps in all seasons and weather conditions.
