exterior stair


What would be the code for a single exterior stair leading to the entrance of a rental apartment in a residence. Should it be anchored or not?
My husband fell on an unanchored stair and ended up at the doctors and having to have cat scan. The owner of the house that rents the apartment refuses to pay the medical bills saying I have to prove negligence.

Thanks

What, exactly, do you mean by 'anchored'?

Secured so that is does not roll or tip when you step on it.

Was it built with its bottom on sand or uneven soil? Or are you talking about a single, separate tread piece being loose somewhere along the run of steps?
