Is Your Landlord Liable For Your Serious Injuries?
Georgia landlord-tenant law requires landlords to maintain safe, habitable conditions in all rented units. This duty applies throughout a lease term and not just the point in time when you occupy the premises. If you or a family member was physically injured or attacked while on the property and you believe the cause was your landlord’s failure to make necessary repairs or provide a safe environment, we want to know about it at the Law Offices of Derek M. Hays. As in other premises liability and personal injury litigation, you may be able to obtain compensation to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and certain other damages.
We Enforce Accountability For Failures To Repair Hazards And Correct Code Violations
Recognizing that many Georgia landlords shirk their maintenance responsibilities and risk tenant safety, attorney Derek M. Hays thrives on holding them accountable. He has obtained millions in recovery from landlord liability cases. Some of the more common apartment injury causes are:
- Falls on broken steps and dangerous stairways, including those without railings that meet code or without any railings at all
- Negligent security enabling attacks, often in the form of failure to replace broken windows, locks or the secured entry system. This could also occur in the parking lot or common areas of the complex
- Apartment fires that spread without warning because of the absence of working smoke detectors
