Confronting a management company or landlord over the duty to maintain a premises in a fall down case
A management company or landlord, public or private, has the duty to maintain a property that is safe for any member of the invited public. When a management company or landlord allows unsafe conditions to exist and those unsafe conditions lead to a fall down resulting in injury, the landlord is held accountable.
John D. Fernandez, P.A. asserts claims against for their failure to maintain premises, including:
|Slick floors||Unmarked glass partitions|
|Uneven pavement||Hidden steps down|
|Dark passages and staircases||Sink holes|
|Loose steps or railings||Open manholes|
|Unmarked exits||Open elevator shafts|
Liability for unsafe conditions that facilitate crime
When a landlord fails to take standard safety or security measures and the absence of those measures allows a crime to be committed, the landlord may be civilly liable for the harm done by the criminal. If your landlord does not have adequate lighting, and you are attacked in a dark passage; does not replace a broken front door lock and your home is invaded; or refuses to evict an out-of-control tenant and you are injured by that tenant’s reckless behavior, you may have a case to recover from the landlord. John D. Fernandez, P.A. will evaluate your case for free and advise you whether it’s wise to pursue a claim.
