Slip and Fall Injuries Inside Your Apartment or Rented Home

PDF Print

When you rent a residence, whether it is an apartment or a house, your landlord has a legal duty to keep the premises safe and habitable. If that duty is violated and you are subsequently injured on the property, you may have a legal claim against the landlord.

People often become injured due to loose handrails, rotted steps or porches, or falling ceilings. If you notice something dangerous or potentially dangerous, you need to notify your landlord of the situation. Documentation is important: send the notice through certified mail or use another method that provides proof that you notified the landlord of the problem.

To protect your interests in the event you are injured, you should also make sure you take photos of the problem. These photos may be used in court in the event of a trial.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to a dangerous condition in your rented residence, contact our Ohio personal injury attorneys now for your free initial consultation.
