Our client fell four feet off the side of the staircase, fracturing her leg in three places. She couldn’t walk for months.
The homeowners’ insurance company told her they were sorry, but they were not responsible. It “wasn’t negligent” to take down the railing. Our client should have been more careful.
We got involved and took the case to court. In moving the case to trial, we proved that the homeowners were running a business out of the house with people coming and going all day long. We took this information to focus groups who agreed that anyone running a business in their home had to make sure the entrance was safe.
