It is important to keep in mind that not all injuries that occur at your residence are a landlord’s responsibility.
In order for anyone to be responsible for another person’s injuries, there must be negligence.
A landlord can be held liable for incidents that cause injury or harm as long they meet the standards layout above.
This may include:⠀
– Injuries from a fall or dangerous incident
– Illness caused by mold or pathogens
– Crush injuries caused by falling objects
– Drowning injuries caused by unsafe pool areas
– Harm or injuries caused by lack of security
– Injuries caused by fire
– Falls caused by dangerous staircases
Any resulting damage from a landlord’s failure to maintain a safe property may be considered their responsibility.
This could include theft, damage to a tenant’s personal property, wrongful deaths, and a myriad of physical injuries like broken bones, severe burns, and head injuries.
