Posted in Apartment Accidents,Personal Injury on April 18, 2024

After suffering a slip-and-fall accident in an apartment complex, victims are often suddenly forced to contend with significant physical, emotional, and financial burdens. These challenges can be overwhelming, leaving many individuals with questions about their legal options. If you were injured in a slip-and-fall accident caused by a negligent landlord or apartment complex, you may have grounds to file a premises liability claim for your injuries and other losses.

Can I File a Claim Against a Negligent Landlord After a Slip-and-Fall Accident in California?

Landlords and apartment complex property owners in California are legally required to keep their premises maintained for the safety of residents and other visitors. Accidents and injuries may occur if the landlord or property owner acts negligently and fails to address critical maintenance issues such as poor lighting, broken stairways, and uneven floors. 

Those injured by landlord and property owner negligence may be able to file a claim to seek compensation for their losses. However, compensation is not awarded automatically. To successfully pursue justice, your attorney must build a strong case containing the following elements:

  • The landlord or property owner knew or should have been aware of hazardous conditions on the property.
  • The landlord or property owner failed to address these maintenance issues or warn residents and visitors of the dangers. 
  • The landlord or property owner’s negligence directly caused your accident and subsequent injuries. 

Our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation into your case to determine the cause of your accident and collect evidence such as photos, videos, and witness testimonies to establish the apartment complex’s negligence
