Pedestrian Injuries: Stairway & Escalator Accidents
Stairway accidents are quite common and can result in serious painful injuries. Irregular, broken, or unsafe stairs can lead to accidents that leave individuals suffering with serious injuries to their bones, head, and spinal cord. It is the responsibility of the property owners to keep stairs maintained and safe for use. Escalator accidents are also quite serious, resulting in gruesome injuries. When escalators are not properly maintained, they could cause dangerous injuries such as degloving of skin as well as hand and foot injuries that may lead to amputations.
