Residential property landlords may also be held liable for slip and fall accidents suffered by tenants and other parties. To hold a landlord responsible, you must show that:
- The landlord had control over the hazardous condition.
- Repairing it would not have been unreasonably difficult or expensive.
- It was foreseeable that the hazardous condition could cause serious injury.
- The landlord’s failure to take reasonable steps to prevent an accident caused your injuries.
