Who Is Responsible If I Was Injured at My Apartment Complex?

Who Is Responsible If I Was Injured at My Apartment Complex?

If you were injured in your apartment complex, either inside or outside, you might be wondering if you can hold your landlord liable for your injuries. However, who is liable will greatly depend on the specifics of your accident. Our Texas premises liability attorneys explain everything you need to know about filing an apartment accident claim below.

Was Negligence Involved in Your Accident?

If you can prove that your injuries could have been prevented with the landlord’s proper maintenance, you might have a premises liability claim. In most personal injury cases, there must be negligence if your claim is going to be successful. Therefore, you must show that you suffered injuries because your landlord kept the property in an unsafe condition.

For example, suppose that you were walking down a staircase in your apartment complex. You misstepped while going down the stairs and tried to hold on to the railing. However, the railing came off, and you fell off the side of the staircase – suffering serious injuries. In this situation, your landlord has a responsibility to ensure that all staircases and railings are secure. If the railing had been unstable for some time and the landlord never made an attempt to repair it, they would be liable for your injuries.

What Should I Do If I Was Injured in My Apartment Complex?

If you were injured in the apartment or home you rent because the landlord negligently failed to maintain a safe space, you might have a premises liability claim. The first thing you should do is contact an experienced premises liability attorney to help you navigate these uncharted waters. Our team at Daspit Law Firm can analyze your situation and help you with your claim from beginning to end so that you can get the best possible outcome.
