Like with defective walkways and surfaces, many codes apply to the width, grit, differentiation and curves of stairways and handrails. The nose of a step, for example, cannot be curved more than appropriate, and there are requirements between one stair's rise and the beginning of the next. If a person isn't expecting a change in height between one step and another, or a handrail isn't sized properly — it's the wrong height, it's improperly secured or the slope is unpredictable — dangerous consequences can result.
While there are many personal injury attorneys practicing in Florida, few have the code knowledge, experience and resources to truly establish a case that arrives at compensation commensurate with injuries in premises liability cases.
