Hello! I'm going to try and keep this short...try!
Two and a half years ago we moved into this house. We are renting it through a leasing company. It's two levels, with two sets of stairs going down stairs (split bi-level). When we moved in, there was no railing for the stairs going down the second set of stairs (seven stairs total). Eight months after we moved in, my mom fell down the stairs. She tore her achillies tendon, sprained her tailbone, and got stitches in her arm. Since then, she has had to have surgery on her achillies tendon because of the fall.
colorado state las says if you have more than 3 steps, there must be a railing. We bought the railing, and they installed it. They didn't install it in studs, and now it's coming out of the wall. We have always paid bills and rent on time, without any problems. We're worried they won't let us out of our lease, and are curious about if we have a case. We have renters insurance, and my mom has health insurance but she had to pay a lot of co-pays for special doctors.
So, any advice would be awesome!!!
