Chester County, PA Landlord Liability for Injured Tenants

Chester County, PA Divorce Attorney | Divorce Lawyer in Chester County, PA

Tenants often think that they cannot sue their landlord for injuries they sustain due to dangerous conditions existing on the property that they are renting. Or, they are afraid to sue because they fear that their landlord will evict them in retaliation. Sometimes it is true that a tenant cannot sue a landlord for a dangerous condition on the rental property, but this is not a blanket rule. Lawsuits by injured tenants against their landlords involve complex legal issues that Brian Andris, Esquire can analyze and then provide appropriate guidance on how to proceed. If you have been injured as a result of a condition of the property that you rent — whether the injury was caused by a defective window that caused a laceration to your hand; loose, narrow or uneven steps that caused you to fall; loose or uneven floorboards that caused you to fall; an accumulation of ice on the property as the result of poor drainage that caused you to slip and fall; dim exterior or common area lighting that caused you to slip/trip and fall; a failure by your landlord to remove snow or otherwise maintain the property in accordance with your lease agreement; a lack of security that subjected you to an assault or other violent criminal activity; or, any other aspect of the property you think was dangerous and caused you injury, you should call Mr. Andris immediately at 610-585-1256. It is unlawful for a landlord to evict a tenant for retaliatory purposes. Have Mr. Andris on your side right away to protect you and enforce your rights.
