CAN A LANDLORD BE HELD LIABLE FOR A PERSONAL INJURY?
Disputes between landlords and tenants are far too frequent here in Florida. However, when a landlord neglects the management, repair, and maintenance of a residential property, that negligence can lead to all kinds of accidents and injuries; fire from electrical problems, mold caused by water damage, and falls caused by broken stairs or railings are some of the more common injuries that can be caused by a landlord’s negligence.
WHEN CAN A LANDLORD/PROPERTY OWNER BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR MY INJURY
To legally establish a landlord’s liability for a personal injury, an injury victim must prove that:
- It was the landlord’s duty to maintain the area of the premises where the accident happened.
- The landlord did not take reasonable steps to keep the accident from happening.
Repairing the hazardous condition – or providing a sufficient warning – would not have been unreasonable, burdensome, or expensive.
- The accident was foreseeable and a serious personal injury was the predictable consequence of the landlord’s negligence.
- The landlord’s negligence caused the tenant’s or visitor’s accident.
- The tenant or visitor was genuinely injured in the accident and incurred damages.For example, if a tenant or a visitor falls and breaks a leg on a rickety staircase, the landlord may be held legally accountable if the tenant can prove that:
- the landlord was aware that the staircase needed repair;
- it was the landlord’s legal obligation to maintain the stairs;
- the landlord failed to take responsible action – for days or weeks – to make the repair;
- the needed repair was not burdensome or expensive;
- the predictable result of failing to make the repair was an injury;
- and the dilapidated staircase, in fact, did cause a genuine personal injury.
