This case takes place in New York and involves a woman who was walking into a shop by way of a stoop with six concrete steps. The steps were very steep and made of concrete that had cracked and weathered due to age. As the woman was making his way up the stairs to the shop, she tripped on the final step, which was some centimeters higher than the proceeding steps. There were some warnings to patrons to be careful on the steps, however the stairs had no handrails and the warnings did not specifically warn about the variance in height between the last step and the preceding steps. Ultimately, the fall caused the woman several permanent injuries that have greatly impacted her quality of life.
