The majority of us will feel safe and content in our own homes. Unfortunately, the risk of injury or wrongful death does not go away. Apartment buildings in the state of Florida could host any number of dangerous liabilities to even the most alert of residents. If you have been injured as a result of another’s negligence and need help determining who is responsible according to Florida’s personal injury laws, please read on, then contact an experienced Broward County slip and fall lawyer to learn what you should know about apartment accidents in Florida.
Who is liable for apartment accidents in Florida?
When you experience an accident in an apartment, that falls under premises liability law. It is the duty of property owners to keep apartment buildings, playgrounds and common areas safe for residents living there and anyone who may visit. If property owners fail to do so, it could result in a personal injury lawsuit. As it so happens, landlords are not the only ones you can hold responsible for the injuries you sustained in a Florida apartment building.
Who can you hold responsible for apartment accidents in Florida?
You will have to assess where the accident occurred and how you received your injuries in order to determine who else you can hold responsible for your injuries. Common injuries are as follows:
- Cuts and bruises
- Sprains and strains
- Herniated disc
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- TMJ and/or dental injuries
- Scarring and deformities
- Tears and ruptures
You can hold the following parties responsible if the facts of your case warrant it:
- Building owners
- Security company
- Landscaping company
- Parking lot maintenance company
- Trash removal company

You should reach out to a skilled Broward County personal injury attorney to discuss your next steps and to determine who can be held accountable and for what.
