Imagine heading into your home after a long day at work, looking forward to relaxing after several arduous tasks. Suddenly, right outside your front door, you slip and fall onto the ground. You realize you must have accidentally kicked a raised crack in the flooring, the same one your neighbor had asked your landlord to fix a few weeks ago. What can you do about your injuries in this situation? Experiencing a great deal of pain and potential memory or concentration issues will not come without consequences.
If you slip or trip and fall and believe your landlord is responsible for your injuries, you might benefit from speaking with a representative at Younglove Law Group. Our legal team is highly experienced in personal injury law, including incidents involving slip-and-falls. We have access to proven strategies and resources that can benefit your claim, and our clients trust us to work hard toward excellent results.
Can You Sue Your Landlord for a Fall on the Property?
In short, you might be able to sue your landlord for your slip-and-fall accident. If you have fallen due to your landlord’s negligence or purposeful actions, you might be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and other losses. For example, if your landlord is aware of a danger on the property—or a reasonable amount of time has passed for your landlord to be aware—they will likely be responsible for not addressing the obstacle.
We recommend speaking with a lawyer to obtain more helpful information. There are some instances where you may have been expected to avoid the slip or trip, you may have been responsible for the fix, or another factor is at play for the defendant to use against you. A lawyer will inform you of the legalities concerning your unique situation and can represent you when the time comes.
What Compensation Can You Receive After a Slip-And-Fall?
You will likely be entitled to compensation after an injury involving a slip-and-fall. If you have fallen due to someone else’s negligent or purposeful actions, you might be able to receive recovery for the following damages:
- Medical bills, including
- Ambulance fees
- Emergency room or hospital costs
- Physical therapy charges
- Future medical payments
- Lost wages
- Loss of wage-earning potential
- Property damage

If you need assistance determining what damages are eligible for your claims, we recommend speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney. Your lawyer can identify the overall worth of your case and maximize the compensation you are able to receive, enabling you to focus on recovery.
