Best Slip and Fall Lawyer Advice: Who Is Liable for a Slip and Fall Accident at an Apartment Complex?

November 4th, 2021

If you have suffered slip and fall, or trip and fall, type personal injuries in an apartment complex, then you may have important legal rights.  The laws here in Rhode Island and Massachusetts pertaining to this subject can be confusing and complex.  Who do you even make a personal injury claim against?  This is Attorney Mike Bottaro and in today’s blog, I will review who is liable for your slip and fall accident while at an apartment complex.

Who To Sue After A Slip And Fall Personal Injury: Tenant, Landlord, Other?

First, the term “sue” technically means to file a public lawsuit in court.  You should know that here at Bottaro Law, we typically will not “sue” anyone without first providing them with evidence and an opportunity to quietly resolve the case outside of court.

The more precise legal term is that you will need to know exactly what person, corporation, entity, etc. to legally “put on notice” for your personal injuries.  This alone is a serious reason why you need to contact me 24/7 as soon as possible after any type of injury on another’s property. Whether it is a “slip”, “trip,” “dog bite,” or any other occurrence – you may have legal rights to compensation and, equally important, there may be important time deadlines to comply with or forever be barred from obtaining compensation.

Next, we call any type of injury on another’s property a “premises liability” case. These cases are typically fought very hard and you are not going to obtain a maximum settlement without a skilled personal injury firm (my firm has been handling these cases for a long time!).

As to “who” to place on notice, in an apartment complex setting, the facts of your specific case will lead us to an answer. This is why we have free confidential 24/7 consultations so we can promptly investigate your claim.

Potential possibilities as to who to place on notice include another tenant or individual, the landlord, the property management company, and/or an outside vendor or contractor.

How Much Is My Slip and Fall Case Worth If I Was Injured At An Apartment Complex?

One typical question you may have if you have suffered a personal injury on another’s property is “how much is my case worth?”

This is an important question that we here at Bottaro Law begin thinking about right away so that we can get you the most compensation possible as we help you get on with your life.  We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients over the years throughout our Rhode Island and Massachusetts communities.

I invite you to review our website, including our case results page for some examples of other cases we have successfully handled.

Your case is unique and we will give you personalized service.  I have blogged about the different factors that help to answer “How Much Is My Case Worth?”

For slip and fall cases involving an apartment complex, in addition to the severity of your injuries, I want to know about what happened. And what did the defendant(s) do, or not do, to contribute to your slip and fall injury?

For example, if a landlord or property management company failed to remove snow and ice, or did not maintain a railway or stairs up to “code,” this may lead to liability that will help you obtain compensation.

I need to consult with you now in order to obtain more information to begin to investigate and answer this question.  So, if you have been injured in any type of slip and fall injury, I invite you to call or text me 24/7, right now.
