Causes Of Staircase Accidents

From apartment buildings and busy malls to hospitals and hotel lobbies, staircases pose significant risks that can go unnoticed until an unfortunate incident occurs. There are many causes of accidents on staircases, each presenting its unique hazard. They include the following but are not limited to:

  • Broken, damaged or missing stair steps can catch unsuspecting people off guard, leading to trips, falls and serious injuries
  • Missing or damaged hand railings can make individuals, especially those with mobility issues or disabilities who rely on them for balance and support, vulnerable to falls and accidents
  • Loose or damaged step grips or carpeting can cause you to lose footing
  • Unmarked wet, slippery or dirty steps and other unmarked hazards like moisture, spills and debris on staircases can create hazardous conditions and pose a significant risk of falls
  • Poorly lit staircases can impair visibility, making it challenging to navigate safely
  • Objects and debris left on the steps, whether inadvertently discarded or negligently left behind, can cause accidents and injuries
