$130K Settlement for Injuries Caused by Landlord Oversights

$130K Settlement for Injuries Caused by Landlord Oversights

Our client was in a rental home in Boulder Creek, California. The property was owned and maintained by the defendant. During our client’s stay, however, the landlord failed to properly care for and maintain the house. The defendant had a long history of abandoning their duties as a landlord. As a result of this negligence, our client suffered a personal injury accident that required the assistance of our experienced landlord attorneys to file a claim.

Our client’s injuries resulted from a series of negligent acts of oversight and carelessness. The plaintiff was walking across the deck of their home when they tripped on an uneven wooden floor and fell. While falling, our client grabbed the handrail, but it broke. In addition, the light was out.

Previously, our client informed the defendant of the deck’s condition, as it was partially broken and rotted. At that time, the defendant placed a piece of wood that had some height difference from the level of the rest of the deck. As a result of this incident, our client suffered serious and debilitating injuries. As discussed below, the defendant failed to exercise ordinary care to keep the premises in a safe condition. This proximately caused our client’s resulting injuries.

On the date of the fall, our client immediately felt intense pain in their right ankle that shot up to their right knee. Our client had a swollen and throbbing ankle. To remedy the pain, they began at-home therapy by icing the ankle, elevating it, and sleeping on the downstairs sofa. However, the pain did not subside for some time. Our accident attorneys won a claim for $130K in damages against the landlord for the victim’s personal injury case.
