Stairwell Accident ATTORNEYS

Helping Victims of Stairwell Accidents Across Connecticut

We expect stairs to be even, uniform, sturdy, and supportive. Stairs are intended to allow us to move up and down floors safely; when they’re not properly constructed, maintained or lit, people can be seriously injured. Insurance companies often try to pin blame for the accident on the victim’s own carelessness. At D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC, our Connecticut stairwell accident lawyers can protect your legal rights and fight for compensation for injuries or other losses you’ve sustained because of negligence involving a stair accident.


Constructing and maintaining safety in stairwells includes much more than just having railings. Our experience includes stairwell accidents that involve:

  • Ice or snow build-up
  • Poor lighting
  • Poor maintenance
  • Riser heights that are too high or uneven
  • Tread depths that are too short or uneven
  • Unsecured runners
  • Broken banisters and defective railings
  • State or local building code violations

Whatever caused your stairwell accident, do not wait to hire an attorney to investigate the cause before key evidence is lost. We work with professional investigators and respected engineers in preparing our cases and we are ready to act quickly on your behalf.


If you were injured in a stairwell accident anywhere in Connecticut, contact us. We’ll listen and answer any questions you may have about your legal rights and options. We’ll stand between you and the insurance company in negotiations, fielding their questions and inquiries while you focus on healing. In most cases, we’re able to negotiate a settlement due to our experience, reputation and relentless advocacy, but we’re always ready to go to trial, including preparing our arguments and strategies in our in-house courtroom.
