Defective Steps Causing Injury

June 2018

At Herrick & Hart, we often review cases where a person was injured on a step.  The injuries that occur on steps are often serious and in some cases involve a death.  A person who is injured on a step should seek the advice of a personal injury attorney.  There are many factors that need to be evaluated in step cases including the design of the step, the age of the step and the maintenance of the step.  A landlord or business owner has a duty to inspect steps to make sure they are in good repair.

We are all used to going up and down steps everyday.  Although it may seem simple, we have trained our brains and bodies to perform a complex set of motions.  We expect that when we go up and down steps that they will be in good repair.  

If you have been injured, take the time to contact Herrick & Hart.  We have been helping the injured since 1951.  We have time to talk to you if you have been hurt due to the fault of another.
