Broken Stairs/Unmarked Step Downs Injury Lawyer
Owners and managers of public property have a legal responsibility to ensure their Henry County premises are safe for the public. This includes performing any needed maintenance to ensure stairways and walkways are clear, free from obstructions and clearly visible. If the risk for an injury exists, such as ongoing maintenance or a wet floor, proper warnings should be posted to warn people of the danger.
In some cases, wear and tear on a building or needed maintenance goes unnoticed and possibly ignored by the property owner or manager. A common instance of this is broken stairs or unmarked step downs that pose a risk of trip and fall injuries. Under Georgia law, if a person falls on broken stairs or unmarked step downs and incurs an injury and no warnings about the condition were visible, the victim can file a premises liability lawsuit. They may be eligible to recover compensation for medical expenses and other losses.
Seasoned Henry County personal injury lawyer Darrell T. Farr can explain how the law applies to your case and other particulars in a free confidential meeting at his Stockbridge legal office.

If you or a loved one suffered a slip and fall injury because of broken stairs or unmarked step downs in a public place, contact attorney Darrell T. Farr or call (404) 964-6056 to discuss your possible premises liability claim. Due to the fact that more than one person or entity could be responsible for the condition that caused your injury, such as a maintenance company or other party, you need seasoned legal representation to defend your rights and pursue your claim.
