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 the blame for the accident on the victim’s own carelessness.

At D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC, our dedicated premises liability attorneys can protect your legal rights and fight for compensation for injuries or other losses you’ve sustained because of negligence involving a stair accident. Call today to speak with a seasoned legal professional about stairwell accidents in Watertown.
