In New York City, the trend is to build up because space is so limited on the island and the surrounding boroughs. Therefore, staircases are a necessary part of life. From two-story apartment complexes to skyscraper office buildings, stairways and staircases are an integral part of the building structure that must be properly cleaned and maintained whether they are used daily or only in the event of an emergency.
When an accident occurs, it is within your right to hold the building owner, management and maintenance companies responsible for their negligence. At the Law Office of Nussin S. Fogel, we have extensive experience in handling premises liability actions related to stairway accidents.
