Who is liable for an accident in an apartment building?

On Behalf of | Jun 10, 2021 | Premises Liability |

When someone sustains an injury because of a dangerous condition inside of an apartment building, there may be more than one potential defendant. Someone who suffers a severe injury from falling, for example, may be unsure about who is at fault.

The party responsible for the condition may not necessarily be the owner of the building. Here are two other examples of potential defendants in a personal injury case.

Property Management Company

A property management company rather than a property owner may be legally liable for injuries that occur both inside an apartment and the building’s common areas. In general, the property management company must be aware of a dangerous condition to be liable for injuries resulting from it. However, there are instances in which claimants can successfully establish liability by showing that a property manager should have been aware of a condition even if he or she was not actually aware of it.

Contractor

A third-party company may be at fault for injuries in a building. If a company performs work that results in a safety hazard, that company may face serious legal liability. Whoever hired the company may also be liable for a third-party’s work if it hired the company negligently or had reason to know that the work created an unsafe condition.

Personal injury victims may need to carefully consider who may be responsible for an injury that occurs inside of an apartment building. In some cases, a plaintiff may be able to pursue more than one party for a judicial or monetary remedy.
