A: You may have a negligence case against the landlord, the property management company, and any other party responsible for the area where your accident occurred.
In Pennsylvania, landlords are required to provide a reasonably safe environment for their tenants, guests, and licensees – those persons who are on the property by agreement of the landlord. Licensees include postal and utility workers. Under Pennsylvania landlord liability and negligence law, landlords are required to warn licensees of known dangers.
For example, a worker who trips over a defective sidewalk at an apartment complex may have a viable negligence case against the landlord, so long as the landlord knew of the defect. To read more about landlord liability and negligence in Pennsylvania, click here.
