Woodbridge, NJ Apartment Accidents
Holding Landlords Accountable for Dangerous Conditions
Living in an apartment building should make you feel secure knowing that your safety is being looked out for. When a landlord fails to maintain his or her apartment building and property, it is often the renters or their guests who pay the price. Code violations and other unsafe conditions can cause devastating injuries.
At Palmisano & Goodman, P.A., we dedicate ourselves to fight for the rights of people who have suffered injuries due to landlord negligence. No matter how you were injured, our Woodbridge premises liability lawyers offer a free initial consultation to review your case.
Understanding Landlord Liability Laws
Landlords are not automatically responsible for all injuries that occur in apartments. However, they are responsible for unsafe conditions that result in injuries. Our Woodbridge premises liability attorneys respond swiftly to collect and preserve evidence of unsafe conditions.
We are ready and able to speak with witnesses and other tenants, research building code violations, and previous accidents at the apartment. Our legal team is here to work with you to understand the extent of your injury and the aftermath, such as surgery and rehab, lasting disability, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
Examples of unsafe conditions for which landlords can be held accountable include the following:
- Neglected repairs and slippery floors
- Missing smoke alarms
- Missing or defective door and window locks
- Negligent security and sidewalk cracks
- Broken or uneven steps
- Missing or broken handrails
- Inadequate lighting
- Snow and ice accumulations
- Defective electrical repairs
- Gas explosions
