Personal Injury Lawyer

Whenever someone is a guest on someone else’s property, the property owner has a responsibility to keep the premises safe and prevent injuries on their property.

That means cleaning up spills, removing dangerous tree roots, and keeping cables and wires from crossing places people might trip. In a store or a single house, it is relatively clear who is responsible: the owner of the property.

In an apartment, it is not always the owner who is in charge. Often, property management companies own large apartment buildings, and property managers handle the day to day running of the property, with maintenance teams who upkeep the facilities. Smaller apartments may be owned by individual landlords who perform the upkeep themselves, or hire janitors and maintenance workers or companies. Of course, each apartment is also rented by a family or individuals. This means that there are multiple parties who could be responsible for dangers. Luckily, the law has relatively clear rules to decide who is responsible for what upkeep.

 

Usually, everything inside the apartment unit is the renter’s responsibility, and everything outside the apartment (hallways, stairs, fire escapes, and the surrounding property or grounds) are all the owner’s responsibility. Your lease may give more specific details, and may actually put some responsibilities inside the apartment in the hands of the property owner. For instance, if your apartment does offer maintenance for things like sinks and plumbing, then sink and plumbing dangers may be their responsibility, not yours.

Even when maintenance workers or janitors perform services on hallways and other common areas, they are often ultimately the apartment owner’s responsibility. The staff that the apartment owner or landlord hires to clean and maintain the premises are “agents” of the landlord. That can often mean that, whether they are individual workers, on-staff workers, or part of a facilities maintenance company, they are acting on behalf of the landlord. A premises liability attorney may be able to hold the landlord responsible for the failures of their staff.

    Personal Injury Cases Due To Negligence

    If your accident was caused by a landlord’s failure to maintain the property, you may have a case of negligence. Serious injuries can occur if a landlord does not properly care for their land or buildings, such as:

    • Burns from malfunctioning appliances
    • Infections and illnesses resulting from vermin, garbage, or other health hazards
    • Slip and falls due to debris, construction materials, or improperly maintained buildings
    • Cuts due to exposed metal, broken glass, or other sharp objects

    In this type of case, it’s important to collect evidence of negligence and determine who is at fault for the condition of the property. If you’ve suffered a fall, burn, infection, or other injury as a result of a neglected property, speak to a Los Angeles personal injury attorney today.
