Bringing a Suit Against Your Landlord For a Stair Injury

If the staircases at your building are in disrepair, your first step should be to alert your landlord. If doing so has failed to get a response, or you or a loved one has already been hurt, you need to look at your legal options.

Your landlord is expected to keep your residence at a reasonable standard of repair, and if he or she fails to do so and someone gets hurt, then premises liability law comes into play. Your landlord may be held liable for your injuries, pain and suffering and you may be entitled to compensation.

Each case is unique, so contact a personal injury attorney to find out just how premises liability law applies to your situation. Even if you pay low rent and/or live in an older building, you still have the same rights as anyone else.
