It is worth calling an attorney if I trip and get hurt on the stairs?

Yes, if you fell and got hurt on someone else’s property and you did not cause your own fall, then it is worth calling an attorney to talk about your accident and possible recovery. While an attorney cannot help you if you got hurt on your own property, if you tripped on your shoelace, or if you were negligent on the stairs, an attorney may be able to help you in other cases.

Here Are Some Things to Consider

You may have a potential slip and fall lawsuit if a property owner knew or should have known of a dangerous condition that led to your fall and failed to fix it or warn you of it. Accordingly, you should think about:

  • The lighting on the stairs.
  • Whether there was a handrail or railing.
  • Whether any of the stairs were lose or broken.
  • Whether there was debris of any kind on the stairs.

You should also consider any other conditions that could have led to your fall.

You Have Nothing to Lose

We provide free consultations for slip and fall victims. If you have been hurt by tripping or slipping on stairs, then we would be happy to talk to you about your legal rights. If you don’t have a strong case then we will also tell you that—and you have lost nothing.

However, if we do think you have a good case then we will let you know that, and we can represent you on a contingency fee basis so that you don’t pay us anything up front for our services and instead pay our fee from your recovery. To find out more about your legal rights and how to protect your recovery, please start a live chat with us today.
