Liability of Apartment Complex Owners
Apartment owners are required by law to keep the premises safe to a reasonable extent and to notify residents if there is potential danger they should be aware of. When this doesn’t happen and you are injured due to the neglect of the owner, you have the right to sue. Successfully suing an apartment complex isn’t cut and dry. It requires knowledge of landlord-tenant laws and proof of a violation. You must also determine a cause and prove it was the landlord’s fault. You need an expert on your side unless you simply take the matter to small claims court in which case you’ll be limited in your amount of recovery. It is always best to trust an apartment complex attorney to tend to your case.
