Would A Landlord Be Liable For Injuries Sustained On A Resident Who Slipped And Fell In An Apartment?

People use the term “landlord” loosely. Usually, the landlord, from a lawyer’s perspective, is the owner of the property.

As an owner of property, the owner would certainly be responsible for any dangerous slip-and-fall conditions which the owner/landlord is responsible for. Merely because a person is a tenant in that building does not take away from the landlord’s responsibility.

Additionally, the managing agent in charge of operating or managing the building could also bear responsibility, especially if the owner has a separate company or individual managing that building.

There are many common areas inside multiple dwellings or apartment buildings, such as lobbies, vestibules, laundry rooms, elevator banks and common hallways, not to mention stairways which must be maintained by landlords and their agents.
