Staircase Injuries – Stay Away from Them

Posted on Posted in Stair and Railing

Did you know that over one million staircase injuries occur each year as the result of falls?

Did you know that staircase and stairway accidents constitute the second leading cause of accidental injury, second only to motor vehicle accidents?

Did you know that each year, there are 12,000 stairway accident deaths?

These statistics tell us that using even just a simple stairway can be quite dangerous. Many of these falls are caused by various types of negligence such as defects in the stairs, stairwell or stairway, improper or inferior lighting, dangerous stair risers, damaged or faulty steps, and defective railings or handrails.

DO regularly check your stairs and all its parts (i.e. newel posts, balusters, hand rails) for damage and/or defects.

DO make sure there is sufficient lighting on the stairway.
