Murray Apartment Residents Say Injuries Due to Bad Steps

A Murray apartment complex is under fire after complaints from residents who say the grounds are dangerous. On Monday, a 21-year-old man fell through a step at the Stillwater Apartments that he says was in need of repair. His neighbor also says he fell because of a bad step and hurt his back last year. Now, those residents say they’ll sue if the apartment management doesn’t patch up the unstable steps.
MURRAY, Utah ABC 4 UTAH)- A Murray apartment complex is under fire after complaints from residents who say the grounds are dangerous.  On Monday, a 21-year-old man fell through a step at the Stillwater Apartments that he says was in need of repair. His neighbor also says he fell because of a bad step and hurt his back last year.  Now, those residents say they’ll sue if the apartment management doesn’t patch up the unstable steps.

21-year-old Brennen Davis says he’s in crutches because of crumbling steps at the Stillwater Apartments.

“One of these bottom ones crumbled underneath me and my whole foot crumbled on the side and instantly I felt pain,” said Brennen Davis.

His aunt who lives in the building, Carey Hamilton, rushed her visiting nephew to the emergency room on Monday where they learned he fractured his left ankle.  Their neighbor says a similar thing happened to him.

”Last year a step broke, I feel down and I hurt my back,” said Stillwater Apartment Renter Walter Jewppesen.

Hamilton says she wrote a letter with her concerns about the steps back in June.  Now, they want all the steps in the entire complex replaced.

“It’s so dangerous walking down your stairs and its not even winter there’s no ice, there’s no excuse for it,” said Stillwater Apartments Renter Carey Hamilton.

And when they went to the property management office on Tuesday…

“She told us to call corporate and that’s all she said no apology no nothing she just said call corporate,” said Davis.

So ABC 4 Utah tried to talk to property management.  We were directed to call the corporate office in Texas before being asked to leave the premises.  We called the corporate office, but no one answered.

“We’ve been shuffled around from the Vice President, risk management, legal department and now they’ve filled it with their insurance,” said Hamilton.

Now, the residents say they want money for medical costs, loss of wages, and paina dn suffering after having to cancel a family trip to Southern Utah.

Again, ABC 4 Utah tried several times to reach someone at the corporate office in Texas on Wednesday and Thursday.  Our calls and emails were not returned.
