What should I do after an apartment accident in Washington D.C.?
If you have been injured in an apartment accident, there are several things you must do to maximize your chances of winning a personal injury claim. However, the most important thing you can do is retain the services of an experienced Washington D.C. personal injury attorney who knows how to satisfy the burden of proof to win you the compensation you need to get back on your feet again. To win a premises liability lawsuit, you will need an attorney who can prove that your landlord knew about the unsafe apartment conditions, failed to fix those conditions in a timely fashion and that you were injured and suffered significant damages as a result. The attorneys at Trombly & Singer, PLLC have been doing this for years, and they are ready to do the same for you.
How long do I have to sue a landlord after being injured in my Washington D.C.? apartment?
In Washington D.C., there is a statute of limitations in place regarding the amount of time individuals have to take legal action against negligent property owners, known as the statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Washington D.C. is three years, individuals will have three years from the date of their accident to take legal action against a negligent party. If you have been injured in an apartment accident, you must not wait longer than three years, for if you do, you will most likely be barred from suing. We are ready to begin the claims process on your behalf immediately–all you have to do is ask.
