Injured from slum housing conditions?
Have you been injured because your slum lord won’t make repairs in or around your home? A landlord/owner is legally obligated to provide safe and habitable conditions. If you or your children have been injured, you may be able to recover damages. We fight for tenants and their children’s rights against their slumlord’s neglect of the property.
You may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, lost income, physical and mental pain and suffering, and disability or disfigurement. The tenant may also be able to sue for damage caused to physical property as a result of faulty or inadequate premises maintenance.
Common hazards that can lead to injuries for which a landlord may be liable include:
Broken steps or rails
Inadequately maintained elevators
No warning signs
Dangerous swimming pools (broken/defective pool drains, lack of signs)
Deficient, defective or broken doors, gates and locks
If you’re being evicted, don't delay. Call us for a free consultation.
