Property owners owe a duty of care to ensure premises are safe for others.
Every person deserves the right to live in an apartment building where they feel safe, secure and respected. A tenant has the right to live in a hazard-free, safe environment.
Unfortunately, there are many landlords who do not care enough about their tenants to make sure that happens. It is common for them to neglect their responsibility to keep you safe and secure.
Injuries happen because of:
- Bad lighting in stairwells
- Ripped or torn carpeting
- Electrical failures
- Faulty water heaters - scalding burns
- Broken stairs, railings
- Improperly maintained elevators
A landlord is required to follow certain housing rules and regulations for the residence, communal areas, such as hallways, walkways, and steps. This is not only for the tenants, but any visitors that come onto the property.
If you, as a tenant, or one of your visitors, suffer a serious injury due to the negligent actions of your landlord, this is the time to contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has been successful in premises liability cases.
An accident can be a very traumatic experience, especially when it occurs in your own home.
