Injuries Caused by Owner's Negligence
Los Angeles Tenants' Rights Lawyers
When the tenant of an apartment building or house is injured on the property as a result of negligence by the owner, then that tenant may be able to recover damages related to the injuries sustained. For the owner to be held legally responsible for the accident, it must be shown that:
- It was the responsibility of the owner to maintain the portion of the property where the tenant was injured
- The owner failed to take the necessary actions to prevent the accident
- The accident was foreseeable (injury was a consequence of not addressing the problem)
- The owner's negligent or careless actions caused the tenant's injuries
- The tenant sustained genuine injury

A tenant who has been injured because of an owner's negligence can file a personal injury claim or lawsuit against the owner's insurance company.
