“Tell Them You Mean Business”

Tenant injuries spark debate over landlord liability

You rent your apartment or home. One day, without warning, you slip and fall down the stairs after a railing comes lose. You trip on a loose board on your back porch. Maybe you break your arm or your neck falling from a ladder trying to clean your gutters. Who’s responsible? Who’s liable? Your landlord? Who will pay your medical bills? What about lost wages? What are your rights?

And what if you sustain an injury at work in a rented office? What if you’re a guest at your friend’s rented apartment and you get injured? What should you do?

A landlord can often be held liable if authorities determine the landlord was negligent in maintaining the property. By law, landlords are required to safely maintain their property for tenants. This is especially true for maintaining public areas. Public areas include:

  • Front door steps
  • Driveways
  • Stairwells shared by more than one tenant
