    Inclined stairs.

    My friend's mother fell from their stairs and broke her leg. They have inclined stairs (The stairs have kind of slope) and it becomes difficult sometimes to balance yourself.

    Please check.

    Re: Inclined stairs.

    All stairs(staircases) are inclined, so I think the word is redundant.

    Maybe you mean the treads(the horizontal parts of the steps)of the staircase are not level making the user lose balance easily while stepping on them.

    Re: Inclined stairs.

    There's no easy way to describe what you're talking about. I would probably just say something like "The stairs are uneven so it's easy to fall on them".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
