Apartment Slip and Fall Accident
Slip and Fall Accidents — Apartment
When you go home at night, you have every reason to expect that your apartment building will be a safe place for you. You shouldn’t have to worry that lazy superintendents or property managers will fail to maintain the property in a safe way. Unfortunately, however, many property owners do not take the proper steps to keep tenants safe on their way home.
When a spill or a leak occurs, good property managers address the situation immediately. This may include putting up signs to warn passers-by about the issue, cleaning up the mess right away, and taking steps to prevent future leaks. When these safety protocols are correctly followed, the risk of injury is much lower. But some careless property managers fail to take these steps, which puts innocent tenants and their guests at risk.
Slip-and-fall injuries can cause a significant amount of damage and stress, including short- and long-term medical costs as well as emotional pain and suffering.
Landlords are legally required to maintain their premises safely. This includes routine inspection, promptly addressing hazards, and warning visitors about potential safety issues. If property owners fail to maintain the safety of their property, they can be liable for injuries sustained by visitors and tenants.
If you slipped and fell due to improperly managed property conditions, you may be entitled to compensation for things like medical bills and missed wages.
