Stairs can become dangerous if they are not properly taken care of.

These incidents are usually needless and preventable if a property owner, renter, leasor, or other individual keeps their premises reasonably safe.

A skilled lawyer could help someone prepare a claim based on the cause of their accident.
A property or business owner must keep their premises reasonably safe under the circumstances. This means that they must keep their premises free of hazardous conditions and fix any potential dangers within a reasonable amount of time. If a proprietor cannot immediately fix a hazard, such as a broken stair, they must warn all guests of this unsafe condition on their property. When possible, a landowner or business owner should have guests avoid a potentially hazardous, dangerous, or defective condition on their property. For instance, if a handrail is missing on a staircase, the owner should block off that set of stairs from use.
Therefore, if an individual slips and falls down a stairwell, and the landowner or business owner knew or should have known about the condition, the injured party may be entitled to compensation under state law.

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.
The entire team at Springs Law group has been nothing but amazing. Jake and the rest of the staff were great to work with and extremely professional. They were very attentive and answered any questions and concerns I had. I was always able to contact them and they were very responsive and communicated with me
Big thanks to Mr. Jake Kimbell and his team for their assistance with my case. He helped me through an incredibly challenging part of my life, and most importantly helped navigate through the convoluted legal channels of my case. I cannot thank him and his team enough for their support.
I never have a problem with getting a response when I need them – which is not the case with most other firms. They really truly care about each client. As a plus, they always have positive attitudes, which matters tremendously when you are in a stressful legal situation.
