A tenant is suing a property owner for alleged negligence in the Orange County Circuit Court.
The woman filed a complaint on June 23 alleging that the property owner failed to provide a safe environment for her tenants.
According to the complaint, the tenant alleges that she suffered a severe injury to her left fibula on Oct. 5, 2014, which allegedly necessitated two months of orthopedic exercises, one year of disability for a year, and caused her to be unable to work. The tenant claims that the injury was caused when she struck tree roots and a mole hole due to the alleged poor lighting and maintenance of the lawn.
The tenant holds the property owner responsible for allegedly failing to warn her about the existing dangers of the premises, maintain and supervise the premises where the accident occurred and for allegedly allowing a dangerous condition to exist.
Property owners are responsible to adequately operate, manage, maintain and supervise their property to protect tenants and others from risk of harm. However, when property owners fail to maintain a safe environment for that results in serious injuries, they may be held liable for negligence.
