Premise Liability/Personal Injury

At The Law Firm For Tenant Rights, Inc.  our commitment extends beyond traditional tenant concerns, reaching into the critical area of premise liability and personal injury. Recognizing the paramount importance of tenant safety, we advocate for those who have suffered injuries due to landlord negligence. Landlords bear a significant responsibility to maintain their properties in a condition that ensures the safety and well-being of their tenants. Failure to uphold these duties not only breaches trust but also legal obligations, potentially resulting in serious harm to tenants.

Understanding Landlord Responsibilities and Premise Liability

Landlords are required by law to exercise ordinary care in the management and operation of their properties. This encompasses a wide range of responsibilities, from ensuring structural integrity to maintaining common areas and addressing potential hazards promptly. The essence of premise liability centers on this duty of care and the consequences faced by landlords who neglect it. When a landlord’s negligence leads to a tenant’s injury, the pathway to legal recourse and compensation opens.

The Scope of Landlord Negligence

Negligence by landlords can manifest in numerous ways, each with the potential to cause harm. Common examples include, but are not limited to:
  • Failing to repair known hazards (such as broken stairs, loose railings, or exposed wiring).
  • Ignoring tenant reports of dangerous conditions.
  • Neglecting to undertake regular maintenance and inspections that could prevent accidents.
  • Inadequate security measures leading to tenant injury.

    Each of these scenarios underscores a failure to provide a safe living environment, placing tenants at undue risk.

Your Rights and Potential Compensation

If you have sustained an injury due to your landlord’s negligence, it is crucial to understand that you have rights and may be entitled to compensation. The damages recoverable in premise liability and personal injury cases can cover a broad spectrum, including but not limited to:
  • Medical expenses related to the injury
  • Loss of earnings if the injury has impacted your ability to work
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Additional costs incurred as a result of the injury
