Stairway Accidents

Throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, there are many apartment buildings and complexes that have faulty stairwells. This dangerous condition often results in serious injuries to apartment residents, their guests and other individuals such as delivery people who visit the property. If you have suffered any type of injury, you may have a premises liability personal injury action against the building management.

At Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, we represent people throughout the San Mateo, California, area who have been hurt in stairway accidents. For help from an experienced San Mateo premises liability lawyer contact us online or call (650) 345-8484.

Skilled Premises Liability Attorneys in San Mateo County

We have a strong commitment to fight for people who have been injured because an area is not properly maintained. Building management should be providing a safe space for people to live and visit. Stairway accidents can cause serious injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Fractures, such as hip or leg injuries
  • Head injuries and concussions
  • Severe bruising
  • Scrapes, cuts and lacerations
  • Paralysis
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.

Client Reviews
I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm! Agatha
I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally. Jerry
Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did. Cindy C.

I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
