Is Your Landlord Liable For Your Injuries On Rental Property?
Landlords have an obligation to maintain safe premises for tenants and others such as their guests. The unfortunate reality is that not all landlords take this responsibility seriously, and people suffer serious injuries from a number of preventable maintenance issues such as:
- Falling ceiling
- Broken steps
- Broken windows
- Lack of hand railing
- Failing to remove garbage or debris
- Failing to remove snow or ice
These issues can persist and increase the likelihood that someone will be injured when a landlord fails to regularly inspect his or her property. In some instances, tenants may have complained to the landlord or the city may have cited him or her for a hazard only to have no action taken. Maybe the property is so poorly supervised that hazards continue without repair.
If you, or someone you love, has been injured by a landlord’s negligence, the attorneys at Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, can help you hold that landlord responsible for your injuries.
Common Injuries Resulting From Landlord Negligence
Pretty much any injury you could suffer in a private home could be experienced on a rental property. Common injuries at apartments and other rentals include:
- Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents
- Burn injuries from fires and explosions
- Electric shock injuries
- Drowning or near-drowning accidents in pools
- Injuries and illness caused by exposure to dangerous chemicals
- Assaults and intentional attacks due to negligent or inadequate security
No matter how you were injured, we will take the time to explain your legal options.
