Buffalo Personal Injury Attorney Discusses Faulty Steps
As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Attorney I am often asked about injuries that are a result of faulty steps. When a client comes in and they’ve fallen on a faulty step here in Buffalo, one of the things we tell them is that it’s very important to get photographs of the area where they fell. That often is so important in determining whether or not they have a claim. The law in this state really focuses on the actual defect of that step. That’s why it’s important that we get photographs so we can make an evaluation of whether or not you have a good claim. Oftentimes we’ll have to engage the services of an investigator to go out and to take measurements. Oftentimes we’ll have to hire an engineer to make a report of whether or not these steps were in compliance with code. One of the things I should mention is normally when you fall you’re unprotected, so the injuries you’ve sustained are rather serious. After you’ve taken care of your injuries it’s very important to make sure that we photograph the area that you fell. We’ll also conduct an investigation so we can make a determination about the validity of your claim.
