Cincinnati, Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana
Thousands of people in Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeastern Indiana live in apartment buildings. Tenants in these buildings reasonably expect their dwellings to be safe, properly maintained, and livable at all times. Sadly, many people are injured in apartment accidents every year - accidents that could have been avoided if the property owner and managers had taken steps to ensure the safety of their buildings.
If you have been injured, or if your loved one has been killed in an apartment accident, you may have a right to compensation for your losses. Our aggressive premises liability attorneys at the Law Offices of Blake R. Maislin, LLC know what it takes to prove liability in these cases and help you obtain the financial assistance you deserve after a serious injury.
Examples of Apartment Accidents
Apartment accidents can involve many possible scenarios, including:
- Ceilings caving in
- Inadequate stairs
- Dim lighting
- Poor security
- Toxic mold
- Negligent security
- Poor plumbing
Apartment owners have a duty to maintain the safety of their property through regular inspections, renovations, and other measures. When this responsibility is not met, the owner can and should be held accountable for any serious personal injuries their negligence has caused a tenant.
Establishing Liability in Apartment Accidents
In order for a landlord to be liable, they generally need to have been notified of the dangerous condition before your injury occurred. Since the apartment manager can be different from the apartment owner, there may be more than one liable party in an apartment accident case. Maintenance workers who recently performed repairs on the apartment building can also be held liable in certain cases.
