As you can imagine, serious apartment accidents can occur for a wide range of reasons. Unfortunately, these accidents are often entirely preventable. Just some of the most common causes of apartment accidents that our firm sees are as follows:
Whether or not you have a valid premises liability claim will depend on several factors. To start, you must prove that your landlord either knew or should have reasonably known of the unsafe property conditions. You must then prove that your landlord failed to take action to remedy the issue timely, and that you then encountered the hazard, sustained injuries, and that the incident caused you to incur significant damages as a result.
This isn’t always easy, which is why it’s best to proceed only with a seasoned landlord liability lawyer in your corner who can help you gather and present evidence to effectively satisfy the burden of proof in your case. As long as we can do so, you should receive compensation to help you recuperate from the physical, financial, and emotional burdens you’ve endured as a result of your accident.
