Did a lapse in premises safety measures cause you to suffer harm?

On behalf of Goldstein Goldstein

Many people live in apartments for various reasons. You may live in this type of residence during a transitional period of your life, or you may have the ability to afford an apartment more easily than buying or renting a house. You may even like moving to different locations and feel that the less-permanent option of an apartment suits your lifestyle. Whatever the reason, you certainly want your apartment and its property to feel safe.

When it comes to premises safety, your property manager or landlord has the responsibility of ensuring that no unnecessary safety risks exist. Of course, landlords can have lapses in judgment or simply act negligently, and as a result, that negligence could lead to an event that causes you to suffer harm.

Key safety

Typically, a landlord has copies of keys to tenants’ apartments in order to have access in the event of an emergency or other situation that lands in the scope of his or her responsibilities. You may not think much about the fact that one or multiple copies of your apartment key exists because you understand that the landlord does have responsibilities that may require that key. However, do you know where your landlord stores that key?

In some cases, landlords will label keys with tenant names or apartment numbers and leave them in a fairly obvious area in the management office. Without much security to protect your key, almost anyone who had the desire could take measures to steal that key and enter your apartment. This type of situation could result in your ending up in a situation where an intruder enters your home and causes you harm.

Taking legal action

If your landlord, property manager or property owner did not take the proper steps to ensure your safety as a tenant on the property, you may have reason to take legal action. Suffering serious harm during a criminal event can leave lasting scars, and not always physical ones. You may have the ability to hold your landlord liable for the damages you suffered due to his or her negligence when it came to premises security.

The reasons for premises liability claims can vary, and if you have suffered injuries or other harm on someone else’s property, you may wish to receive an evaluation of your case to determine whether taking this type of legal action could suit your circumstances.
