No amount of care taken by the users of steps and stairs can fully prevent injuries every time when stairwells, steps and stairs are built poorly, improperly maintained or are otherwise faulty or unsafe. When corporate property owners fail in their legal duty to ensure the safety of tenants and visitors, it's important to hold them responsible for their negligence and to pursue the compensation you deserve for injuries.
