If you have taken a vacation in Palm Springs lately, you may have stayed at the famous Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa, or locally sometimes referred to or called Omni Palm Springs. The Omni Palm Springs offers many different resort packages and accommodations, including:
- Golfing facilities
- Tennis facilities
- Pickleball courts and facilities
- Bed and breakfast services
- Longer days and longer stay packages
But some of these rooms or areas of the hotel have problems with the stairs, stairwells and treads on the stairways, which make it a dangerous condition for the guests as they are walking around at the resort.
Why Are the Stairs at the Omni Palm Springs So Dangerous?
The stairwells, stairways, stairs and treads on stairs at the Omni Palm Springs can be dangerous and have issues in regard to safety. The stairs at this resort may have problems because of low maintenance, with the:
- Stability of the stairs
- Crumbling stairwells
- Loose hand railings
- Wrong dimensions for handrails
- Improper tread distance on stairs
- Poor appearance
Another reason for the stairs at the Omni Palm Springs to be dangerous, is because they were designed wrong. If you have fallen on a winder or curved stairway that does not have an intermediate platform for you to step onto to descend the stairway, you may be susceptible to tripping and falling on that stairway. Finally, if there are rugs or mats placed at the bottom of the stairs, they can become frayed, scrunched up, bunched up or otherwise not flattened out by continued use of the stairwells. You can fall and trip on the bottom areas of a stairway, just as easy as falling from the top of the stairs, when the stairs are in a serious state of disrepair. If this has happened to you, call us now and we can review your claim with you today.
How Are People Injured by Walking on the Stairs at the Omni Palm Springs?

You can call us even as you are recovering from your injuries. It is the right time to give us a call, even if you are still under the doctor’s care for your injuries sustained as a guest at the hotel.
Why Are There More Risks to Acquiring a Permanent Disability with a Spinal Cord Injury?

Can an Injury Falling on the Stairs Be Serious, or Result in a Permanent Disability?
Yes, a fall down a flight of stairs can lead to a serious injury, or even a permanent disability. For example, if you are on a stairwell that is poorly maintained with crumbling stair treads that give away under your feet, you can easily take a tumble backwards and fall down the full length of the stairs. If the stairs are concrete, then the likelihood of your sustaining a serious and permanent disability are increased. If you fall down a flight of stairs either inside or outside of an Omni Palm Springs building, then you may be injured and suffer multiple injuries. Even if you are a stunt double as your “day job” and you are used to falling down stairwells for a living, falling, and careening down a flight of stairs is going to do more than just “hurt.” You can sustain serious injuries that may put you into a hospital, requiring additional surgical procedures, treatments, and other therapies to help you to recover, heal and get “put back together” after a fall on a stairway.
