These troubling incidents may occur because of improper construction, inadequate maintenance, or the failure to repair known problems.

Injuries Incurred from Stair Collapse
Stair collapse can be extremely hazardous for anyone on or near the stairway. The falling material can injure people below, and individuals climbing the stairs may be in danger of falling from heights and striking walls or other objects on the way down. Some of the types of injuries that victims of stair collapse might experience include:
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
It is important that negligent property owners or homebuilders are held accountable for negligence which results in harm to guests on their premises.
