Injuries Relating to Housing Conditions
Liability in Housing Injury Cases
The landlord of a rental unit has a legal obligation to protect the safety of tenants and their guests by ensuring that the property is in a reasonably safe condition. Common areas such as pools, spas, walkways, stairwells, tennis or basketball courts, and elevators must be kept in good repair. If a tenant or guest is injured as a result of unsafe housing conditions, then the landlord, or the owner of the property, may be held liable for the damages sustained, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost income.
Apartment owners or landlords can be held legally responsible for accidents that occur as a result of:
- The landlord promising to make a repair in a tenant's unit but failing to do so
- The landlord or owner violating state building and safety laws
- The landlord or owner knowing of a dangerous condition in a unit at the time the lease was signed, and failing to fix the condition or inform the tenant of its existence
- The landlord or an employee making a repair in a negligent or careless manner
If you have been injured by unsafe housing conditions, a Los Angeles tenants' rights lawyer can take legal action on your behalf to secure compensation for your injuries and related losses.
