As the days get longer and warmer, most of us dream of our summer vacation plans. We dream of getting away to a place where we can relax and unwind with no demands other than those we place on ourselves. Whether you are traveling to a cabin in the mountains, a condo at the beach, or a luxury hotel on a tropical island, you have the legal right to expect the rental until to be safe. A slip and fall in a rental unit can quickly turn a wonderful summer vacation into a nightmare that could last for months or even years.

If you or a family member has been injured in a summer rental unit, contact the premises liability attorneys of Tiemann Law Firm. Rental slip and fall cases can be very complex involving a variety of potential defendants and insurance companies. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling complex premises liability cases including vacation rental units.

Who Do You Sue For A Slip And Fall In A Rental Unit?

Slip and fall cases can occur everywhere, including in a vacation rental. This includes hotels, motels, resorts, cabins, condos, and vacation homes. Regardless of the type of rental until, you have the legal right to expect the unit to be safe. The property owner has a duty of care to maintain the premises in a safe manner for guests.

In a typical premises liability claim, you must prove that the owner caused a dangerous condition or the owner knew or should have known about a dangerous condition and failed to fix or repair the problem. Your slip and fall was the direct result of the dangerous condition and could have been avoided if the owner had taken steps to correct the matter. As a result of your slip and fall, you were injured.

In a vacation rental, you must prove the same elements to collect damages but the personal liable may not be the owner. You could have one or more parties including the property owner, property manager, rental company, or an employee of any of these parties responsible for your damages. It is crucial that you hire an experienced attorney who understands how to investigate your claim to ensure you are naming the correct parties.

Types of Injuries Sustained in Slip and Fall Cases

Many people assume that a slip and fall accident is a minor personal injury. The accident victim may be sore and have a few bruises but otherwise the person will be okay. Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries that can leave the person with permanent disabilities.

Common injuries that our attorneys see in slip and fall cases include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Concussion, contusion, and other head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Broken and fractured bones (hips, legs, arms, shoulder, etc.)
  • Lacerations and bruising
  • Burns
  • Strained, sprained, or torn ligaments
  • Paralysis
  • Burns
  • Permanent disfigurement

The severity of your injury will have a huge impact on the value of your slip and fall case. An attorney must understand how to correctly value future damages such as future medical bills and future lost wages to ensure you receive the maximum compensation allowed by law.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast.

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
