LANDLORD NEGLIGENCE

negligencia-de-su-casero

The law requires landlords to maintain their properties in good condition. If someone sustains an injury as a result of a dangerous condition inside, above, or around a building, they have the right to file a lawsuit against the landlord of that building. Dangerous conditions include injuries caused by lead paint, asbestos, or mold, or accidents involving elevators, roof collapses, and other defective conditions.

Be careful of conditions that can cause harm and can be quickly corrected. For example, a torn carpet, exposed nails, broken glass, lights, doors or windows are all conditions that can result in serious injuries and conditions that can also be quickly corrected, thus eliminating evidence of the condition. The law requires landlords to maintain their properties in good condition. When one is injured as a result of a hazardous condition inside, on top of, or around a building, they have the right to initiate a lawsuit against the landlord of that building.
