Support Rail Injuries

Railing systems are often installed on staircases and patios in order to provide protection against injury. If the railing is improperly installed, damaged, or defective, individuals using the rails may suffer serious injury.

People often depend on railing systems to help them climb or ascend staircases, and often use rails to hold onto while standing on patios at elevation. If the railing system fails as a result of negligence on the part of the property owner, the injured party may be eligible for compensation for pain, suffering, and medical expenses. If you have been injured in an accident involving damaged or defective railing, contact the Wausau personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.

Railing Injuries

Railing injuries may be caused by:

  • Damaged rails
  • Improper installation
  • Defective materials
  • Injuries caused by railing collapse
  • Incorrectly anchored support beams
  • Cuts from unfinished rails
  • Injuries caused by sharp rail edges

Property owners should take precautions to make sure all staircases have properly installed railing systems to protect their guests and patrons. Rails should be regularly inspected for defects and damage, and any issues should be immediately addressed. Proper maintenance can help make sure that individuals do not suffer injury on your property due to faulty rail systems.
