Apartment complex management and slip and fall cases
Like all business and property owners, owners of apartment complexes are held to a legal duty of care. Unfortunately, for the sake of maximizing profits, some apartment complex owners cut corners and compromise on safety, leading to serious slip and fall or trip and fall incidents. Some common hazards in apartment complexes include:
- Stairs are poorly maintained or not up to code
- Lighting in hallways and common areas is dim or unreliable
- Walkways are left cluttered
- Spills are not cleaned up in a timely manner
- Carpets and rugs are not properly secured
- Railings are improperly maintained or absent entirely
Any of these hazards can cause people to slip or trip and fall and potentially sustain serious injuries, such as broken bones and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). That’s why building codes and safety standards exist in the first place. And that’s why it’s so important to hold negligent property owners and managers accountable in the event of an accident.
