Because there are countless ways to get injured you should always consult with an attorney to analyze and discuss your rights with you. These types of cases often require analysis and options by construction and engineering experts. Stairs and railings should not be damaged and stairs must be adequately designed and built in compliance with building codes. On one occasion, our firm represented a man who was highly intoxicated and fell down the stairs in a town home he rented. He grabbed the stair-railing and when he fell, the railing broke and it which contributed to him falling headfirst causing a neck fracture and paralysis. After 10 Different law firms dropped his case, the insurance carrier’s highest offer before trial was $85,000. We ultimately recovered millions of dollars for our client by convincing a jury that stair railing exist for people that need them (Intoxicated or otherwise unable to stand without assistance), and the property manager knew about but had ignored repeated problems with this type of railing in other units and failed to fix the problem. In other words, the property manager had repeated notice of a dangerous condition that contributed to causing our client’s catastrophic injuries despite 3.0 blood alcohol level.
