What Are Your Rights After A Dangerous Property Accident?

Property owners such as landlords and shop owners have a responsibility to keep their property safe for tenants and invited guests. Taking steps to ensure the building is secure and safe, whether by making repairs or by clearly warning of hazards on the premises, can keep people out of harm's way.

When property owners fail to keep their premises safe, people can suffer serious injuries. If a property owner's negligence caused an injury to you or a family member, you may have a claim against the owner. Speak with a lawyer to learn about your rights and options.

The negligence or wrongdoing of property owners can result in a wide range of injuries and accidents, including:

  • Physical attacks — Landlords and other property owners can take steps to ensure the safety of a building's occupants. However, when locks are not in proper working condition, security cameras do not work, lighting in common areas is inadequate, broken windows are left unrepaired and security guards are not performing their jobs properly, innocent people can be robbed, assaulted or raped.
  • Elevator accidents — An elevator accident can happen when an elevator does not stop level with the floor and the individual is caused to fall upon exiting. An elevator accident can also occur when the lift does not stop on the ground floor or basement and continues plummeting to the bottom of the elevator shaft.
  • Ceiling and wall collapses — When ceilings and walls give way and collapse due to water leaks or other hazards, people can suffer brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and crush injuries.
  • Broken appliances — Landlords must keep radiators, water heaters and furnaces in good condition or they risk causing burn injuries.
  • Electrical accidents — Electrical appliances and the wiring in buildings must be in working order and up to code to prevent electric shock, burns and electrocution.
