Proving Stairway Accident Liability
We will hold property owners fully responsible for stairway accidents in San Mateo caused by loose railings or when a riser or railing is a disproportionate height from the steps. If there was improper lighting, stairs are cracked or not adequately cleaned, we can help you recover compensation after a resulting slip-and-fall injury.
Our San Mateo stairway accident attorneys often work with architects who can evaluate the stairway where the accident took place to see if any building code violations exist. This can help prove liability. We can also help deal with all of the insurance issues that arise during a personal injury matter, including if your insurer attempts to deny or delay a claimbecause they contest the nature of your injuries.
In many situations, we can settle your claim for a fair amount out of court. But if trial becomes necessary, we are prepared to provide an assertive strategy to recover the damages you deserve.
