Stair Collapse and Premises Liability
Although it is not a particularly common occurrence, stair collapses in Austin are very dangerous events that may potentially result in a wide range of severe injuries. As such structures are utilized on a daily basis by people all over Austin, the structural stability of staircases are often taken for granted. When poorly maintained, however, stairs may give way and collapse when being used.
Depending on where an individual was on a staircase when it collapsed, the injuries sustained in these accidents can be life-threatening. The Austin stair collapse lawyers at the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C., can help you pursue financial restitution for any damages sustained in a stair collapse in the Austin area.
Factors in Stair Collapses
In Austin, as in the rest of Texas, it is a property owner’s legal responsibility to maintain the structural safety of their premises; however, without proper maintenance and upkeep, stair collapse may result from:
- Wood that is aged and rotted
- Poor construction quality
- Weathering, or otherwise normal wear and tear
- Other property instabilities
As such, should any unwarned, unprotected guest sustain an injury in a stair collapse, the injured guest may hold the property owner or property manager liable.
