Landlord Responsibility for Slip and Fall Injuries

In some instances, a landlord may be liable if there was a dangerous condition that they knew about and they didn’t fix. This is often the case when a renter notifies their landlord of an issue, and they didn’t do anything about it. There may be pretty straightforward liability against the landlord under those circumstances. The landlord most likely has the landlord’s’ homeowner’s policy, similar to a regular homeowner’s policy.

If it was a situation created by the renter, then it may be difficult to hold the landlord liable for that. It would depend on a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your accident.
