We Might Be Able to Hold the Property Owner Liable
Anyone who owns property has the ultimate responsibility of keeping it safe and free from hazards. Even if the owner outsources maintenance duties to a property management company or another third-party, the buck ultimately stops with the owner of the premises. If a property owner allows their premises to fall into disrepair, or allows a hazardous condition to fester without resolve, they can be financially liable for injuries that occur.
The Property Manager Could Be Responsible for Your Personal Injuries
Many property owners hire third parties to manage their real estate portfolio. One duty of a property manager is taking care of maintenance issues that arise, including repairing dangerous or hazardous conditions.
If the person or business hired to manage the property where your injury occurred failed to address a clearly hazardous situation, we may be able hold them accountable and pursue them for damages.
The Maintenance Company May Bear Partial Liability
Perhaps the owner did let the property manager know about the condition, and the manager hired a maintenance company to come out and fix the hazard. The maintenance company may assure both the manager and the owner that the situation was under control—even though it was not.
In a situation like this one, we can still pursue the property owner and property manager for compensation, but the maintenance company may also share in the liability.
