More than 18,000 Americans die each year in fall accidents, making falls only second to motor vehicle collisions as a cause of accidental death. According to the National Safety Council, about 2,500,000 injuries are caused by falls.
A fall down the stairs can result in a serious or life-threatening injury. When an accident was the result of a building code violation or failure of the property owner to correct a dangerous condition, the accident victim has a legal course of action against the negligent party or parties.
