Slip and Fall on Rental Property: Call Milwaukee Injury Attorneys
Landlord vs Renter: Who Is at Fault?
When it comes to slip and fall accidents on a rented property, such as an apartment complex, it may be unclear who is liable for damages. Is it the landlord who literally owns the property but otherwise does not interact with it? Or is it the renter who has more control over the safety of the place? Somewhat surprisingly, the landlord will almost always be held liable as the actual owner.
Property managers and landlords are responsible for ensuring their rental properties meet safety codes for the safety of their tenants. Unless the renters themselves cause an unsafe situation, it falls on the landlord to maintain the property. Anything from keeping stairs in a safe condition to repairing cracked sidewalks around the property all fall under the landlord’s responsibility.
