Personal Injury | Premises Liability

The owners of a residential complex have a duty to maintain the physical property and common areas to reasonably avoid safety risks to residents and their guests. If you have been injured in a fall caused by a broken step or stairway, or slippery floors in a hallway or community room, you want an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses, including wages and income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

At Blackman Legal Group, our attorneys have concentrated on the rights of personal injury victims since 1976. We have considerable knowledge of the laws and legal process governing personal injury claims and meticulously prepare every case, paying close attention to the smallest details of your claim. As a result, we are often able to settle a claim at or above insurance policy limits, and have obtained verdicts or settlements that exceed $1 million for many clients.

While residential complex operators have no control over conditions inside an apartment, they are responsible for any safety threats that exist in common areas inside the building or in parking lots, on sidewalks and at other outside areas. Landlords must either repair any known hazards or provide reasonable notice of any known dangers.

At Blackman Legal Group, we protect the rights of people who have been injured by the poor or negligent maintenance of residential rental property, including cases involving

  • slips and falls. We handle cases involving slippery floors in halls, laundry rooms, storage areas, community rooms, workout rooms or other common areas in a residential rental facility. We also handle injury claims involving broken or defective steps or stairways, as well as torn or damaged carpet or other flooring.
  • inadequate security. If you have been injured in a hallway, corridor, elevator, parking lot or other common area, in an attack that could have been avoided with appropriate security, we will help you seek full and fair compensation for your injuries.
  • broken elevators or escalators. We represent people who have been injured by defective, broken or malfunctioning elevators or escalators at residential complexes.

We handle all personal injury claims on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge attorney fees if we recover compensation for your losses.
