What Is The Liability of a Landlord for Injuries ?

A landlord must take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of his or her tenants.If the landlord knew or should have appreciated the likelihood of crimes against tenants or their property because such activity has taken place before, then he or she must take reasonable steps to ensure that it does not occur again. A landlord also has an obligation to keep "common areas" such as exterior walkways, paths, stairways and facilities free from dangerous and defective conditions. A landlord is not generally responsible for dangerous or defective conditions inside of a leased premises. An experienced personal injury can help you in analyzing whether you can assert a claim against your landlord.
