interesting stuff. But you'd still need to connect the injury to the variance, right? They'd have to know or failed to learn that exterior staircases cause injury. So there must be some sort of greater risk. That or the city's fear of litigation is so great they are irrationally risk averse.

It's interesting to think of these things as pricing phenomena, what price we pay to offset totally minor risks compared to the ones we implicitly take everyday. We either don't know or don't care to make it part of our policy-making.
