Should I Hire a Tampa Stairway Accident Lawyer?
When someone is injured as a result of a property owner (such as a landlord or super) failing to ensure that their stairwells are safe for all passersby, they need experienced legal guidance on their side. Attorney Howard Merricks of Merricks Law Group has decades of experience handling personal injury claims in Tampa and throughout Hillsborough County, and he is ready to put that experience to work for you.
Causes of Stairway Accidents
As you know, it is entirely possible to simply misstep and fall down a flight of stairs, however, in many cases, stairway accidents occur because the property owner failed to ensure that the stairwell conditions were safe and in optimal condition. For example, insufficient lighting can cause someone to miss a step or otherwise trip and fall. Additionally, damaged steps or broken railings can also cause someone to topple over. In other cases, the absence of security can allow certain crimes to occur in a stairwell, leaving an innocent person injured. No matter your circumstances, if you’ve been injured due to no fault of your own, you can depend on our Hillsborough County personal injury lawyer to fight for the compensation you deserve.
Recovering Compensation After an Accident
As long as you can prove that your injuries occurred as a direct result of another party’s negligence, you should recover compensation to help cover the cost of economic damages (lost wages, medical bills, etc.) and non-economic damages, which deal with the intangible, though very real emotional cost of an injury, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
