Who is Responsible for an Apartment Accident?
In most cases, when someone is injured due to unsafe apartment conditions, their landlord is responsible. This is because landlords are legally obligated for ensuring certain safety measures are in place and that their apartments are safe for their tenants. In many cases, you will have a valid claim against your landlord if you were injured because of:
- Unsafe apartment complex parking lots
- Unsafe apartment stairways
- Dangerous apartment complex sidewalk conditions
- Failure to remove snow or ice from apartment complex grounds
- Unsafe drinking water or air conditions
- Failure to install smoke or carbon monoxide detectors in your apartment
- Unsafe flooring
- An unsafe balcony
