Burlington Stairway Accident Attorneys

If you were injured going up or down stairs or outdoor steps, don't be too quick to blame yourself or dismiss your legal rights. Many stairway accidents trace to negligence on the part of the owner or manager of the property, in which case you may be entitled to compensation for the physical and financial harm.

The attorneys of Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., have represented the injured since 1965. We are a local firm committed to helping accident victims in Burlington County, Camden County and South Jersey. Our legal team has secured many recoveries in premises liability cases, including steps and stairwell injuries.

Premises Liability Claims For Injuries On Unsafe Stairs

We know that slip-and-fall accidents on stairs can result in serious injuries, from broken legs or wrist fractures to head wounds and disabling back injuries. We welcome cases of minor or major injuries stemming from stairway hazards.

Our personal injury lawyers are skilled at documenting and demonstrating liability for dangerous conditions such as:

  • Snow and ice on exterior sidewalk steps
  • Ice or melted snow on indoor stairs
  • Rotted or broken wooden steps
  • Slips on waxed or polished stairs
  • Torn rugs or carpet runners
  • Code violations (tread height)
  • Broken or missing railings
  • Poor stairwell lighting
  • Boxes or debris on stairs

We will pursue claims against any party: department stores, big box stores, shopping centers, apartment landlords, homeowners, schools and government buildings. If commercial property owners and tenant businesses blame each other, we will pursue action against both parties and make them prove that they are not legally responsible. If you are bringing a claim against a New Jersey governmental entity we will make sure that your notice of claim is filed within the 90-day statutory period.
