Apartment Safety and Injury Claims

Most of us feel safe at home, as we should. However, if you live in an apartment, your landlord is mainly responsible for ensuring your home is safe. If they fail to do so and you get injured, you may have a valid personal injury claim.

What Causes Apartment Accidents?

Apartment accidents can happen for various reasons. Sometimes, they result from a tenant's careless behavior, but often they stem from landlord negligence. Landlords are responsible for ensuring safety, and when they fail, accidents can occur. Common causes of apartment accidents include:

  • No smoke or carbon monoxide detectors in units
  • Unsafe parking lots
  • Dangerous sidewalks
  • Unsafe playgrounds, tennis courts, or other amenities
  • Unsafe apartment stairwells or elevators
  • Unsafe balconies

What to Do After an Apartment Accident

After an accident, call 911 for immediate medical treatment. Before the police arrive, if possible, take pictures of the unsafe apartment conditions and get witness contact information. Notify your landlord of the accident. After hospital treatment, obtain medical documents and bills and hire a knowledgeable Florida personal injury attorney.

Deadlines for Filing Personal Injury Claims

You must file your personal injury claim in Florida within four years, according to the state's statute of limitations. Waiting longer forfeits your right to claim. Contact Our Experienced Florida Firm
