New Yorkers Deserve Safety When Simply Moving Around Indoors
New Yorkers and everyone else use elevators and stairs throughout the city. Your fall and many others may have been preventable. Stairs in the Bronx or elsewhere could cause an injury if:
- They are broken
- They are uneven
- They have improper spacing and geometry
- They are sagging
- They do not have adequate structural support
- They lack proper or adequate handrails
- They are covered with a loose or slippery material
- They become covered in snow or ice
- They are not properly lighted
New York is not alone as a locale where stairs can be a health hazard. According to Reuters, injuries that occur in stairwells that do not result in death cause about $92 billion in injury-related costs each year. They add that victims of such injuries fall within all age groups.
