At nearly every public place, you will encounter stairwells or stairways. Stairs must be designed with the user's safety in mind. Over time, stairs may require updates and repairs. It is the property owner's job to keep up on maintenance and make certain that the stairs are kept intact.

Causes of Stair Collapses
Stair collapses can occur at a number of locations, such as construction sites, grocery stores, shopping centers, playgrounds and any other location that has regularly trafficked stairways. Collapses can occur due to:
- Poor structural integrity
- Improper repairs
- Design flaws
- Maintenance issues
The injuries that can result from stair collapses can vary drastically. Injuries can be as minor as bumps, bruises and strains, or as serious as head trauma and brain injuries. Even seemingly minor injuries can have a greater physical effect than you may think.
