Can I Sue My Landlord For Injuries?
If you were injured in the building or outside on the landlord’s property, you can sue for injuries resulting from the landlord’s negligence. Generally, the landlord must have created the hazard or have known about it, but not taken adequate steps to remedy the situation. Injuries caused by landlord negligence take many forms, including falls caused by defective staircases, injuries caused by lead paint exposure, injuries caused by toxic fume inhalation, and injuries caused by defective locks and inadequate security.
Who Can I Sue For A Wrongful Death?
If you have lost a loved one due to carelessness, negligence and wrongdoing, all liable parties, even ones who only partially contributed to the fatal injury, can be held accountable for your losses. The lawsuit must be brought by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate, but damages may be awarded to family members.
Can I Sue Uber For A Car Accident?
If your accident was the result of negligence on the part of an Uber driver, you may sue Uber (or another ridesharing service) for damages. Once the driver accepts the ride requests, Uber insurance coverage goes into effect. If someone else, such as the driver of another vehicle, is responsible for the accident, then the insurance policy of that driver will also come into play.
