Who is Responsible for Apartment Negligence in Austin?
In most cases, tenants are responsible for the conditions they create in their own apartments while landlords are responsible for common areas and overall building safety. If you visit a friend in an apartment and trip on debris they left on the floor, you could sue your friend to obtain compensation. This would likely be paid to you by your friend’s renter’s insurer.
Most accidents and injuries caused by apartment negligence, however, are the fault of the apartment owner and landlord, and/or are the fault of the property maintenance company entrusted to care for the space. Landlords and property managers can be held accountable to both tenants and guests when injuries or accidents happen.
What Kinds of Injuries Can You Recover Compensation For After Austin Apartment Negligence?
There are many different kinds of illnesses and injuries which may result in victims obtaining compensation from landlords, property managers, or other responsible parties. Examples include:
- Illnesses caused by toxic exposure, including illnesses due to mold or lead paint.
- Slip and fall accidents on stairs, in common areas, or in apartments.
- Fires and burn injuries resulting from damaged appliances or failure to maintain wires and building electrical systems.
- Injuries caused by acts of violence resulting from negligent security.
In these and other situations, an Austin apartment negligence lawyer at the Loewy Law Firm will carefully evaluate how you got hurt and help you determine all potential people or entities you could pursue a damage claim against.
