Trip And Fall: On Steps & Staircases


Philadelphia Attorneys For Stairway & Steps Trip And Fall Accident Victims

The skilled personal injury attorneys at Philly Slip and Fall Guys have represented many Philadelphia victims injured on stairs, steps, and ladders in our 30 years of distinguished legal service. Generally, these cases fall under the legal category of “premises liability,” in which a property owner, like the owner of an office building or rental house, failed to fix problems that presented a safety hazard to those using a staircase or ladder.

If you or a loved one were injured in a trip and fall accident on a flight of stairs or set of steps in Philadelphia, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our expert trip and fall lawyers have helped thousands of people secure the money they need, when they need it most.

Staircase And Steps Trip & Fall Accident Lawyers’ Experience

Stairs and steps present numerous hazards that may cause a trip and fall accident. Our lawyers have handled cases involving the following trip and fall accident hazards:

  • The outside edge of many stairs are covered by a metal strip, called a “nosing.” Sometimes these strips become detached, sticking up, and causing a fall down the staircase.
  • Handrails are required to aid walkers in walking up or down a staircase. When a negligent property owner has failed to provide a railing, walkers can easily lose their balance and fall.
  • Inadequate lighting in a stairwell can cause walkers to “miss” a step and take dangerous tumbles.
  • Holes in carpeting on stairways can “catch” toes causing a stumble, or trip and fall.
  • In several cases, clients were using fire escapes that had been improperly secured to the outside of their apartment buildings. When the fire escape became detached under their weight, they fell backwards to the ground, a type of fall accident that can cause serious injury.
  • Old staircases collapse under walkers causing them to fall backwards down the stairs.

My husband sustained a very serious injury. Keith handled our case with the utmost compassion and true professionalism. He fought hard for us and my husband recieved the maximum settlement. Keith was not deterred by the insurance company's aggressive attorney.Keith was in constant contact with us, and guided us through the process. His staff was superb, very caring and kept us informed, every step of the way. If you want someone who will fight for you, and not settle for less than you deserve, I highly recommend Keith! We can't thank Keith enough. He is truly appreciated.

My experience with the law office was exceptional. From the amazing staff, paralegals and my attorney Keith Kofsky. Mr. Kofsky worked tirelessly on my case for two years. He's experienced, poised, excellent communication skills and one great negotiator. He had a way of explaining things to me that kept me calm during the process. Keith also keeps his word and is very involved with his clients and cases. We had a very favorable outcome and I can't thank him enough. So Keith once again, thank you very much.

Reaching out to a lawyer, coming from another state, not knowing if they are going to fight for you, I found Keith Kofsky and I was nervous as I had never dealt with a lawsuit before. Keith stepped in as if he were my big brother. As the year went on we had plenty of meetings, all to assure me that we had a case and there were no worries. Down to the last months, difficulties arose. The defendant was not willing to satisfy my case. Keith stepped in as he did all along, and heard what the defendant did not, which helped close out the case. He will go the extra mile for you. Thank you Keith!. Always, Gaynell Allen.
