$125,000 settlement reached against landlord in carbon monoxide poisoning case

Settlement In Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Lawsuit

In 2021, our personal injury lawyers reached a $125,000 settlement against a landlord for injuries sustained in a carbon monoxide poisoning case. In this case, the theory of liability was that the landlord negligently caused the leak of carbon monoxide by failing to maintain a hot water heater. Additionally, the carbon monoxide detectors provided by the landlord were not working properly.

Landlord Liability For Dangerous Conditions on Premises

Landlords have a legal duty to keep their premises in a safe condition for tenants and visitors. This duties includes an obligation to inspect the premises regularly and repair any dangerous conditions that they may find. When someone is injured because of a landlord’s failure to keep the premises safe, the landlord may be held liable for the injuries.

A key factor in determining a landlord’s liability for a dangerous condition on its premises is whether the landlord knew about the dangerous condition. You may be entitled to compensation if the landlord knew about the condition and did nothing to repair it.

Another key factor is whether your injury was foreseeable to the landlord. In other words, could a reasonable person have anticipated that a failure to repair or remedy the dangerous condition could result in the injury you sustained? If the landlord could have reasonably foreseen that someone would be injured by the condition, they will be more likely to be held liable.
