If you were injured in your own building, you might wonder if you have a personal injury case. If you have been seriously injured in your own building, you will have to prove that your landlord was negligent. If your landlord knew or should have known about a hazard and did nothing to fix the problem, you may have cause for a lawsuit. Even if you aware of the hazard because you were the one who gave the notice, you still may have a case. The difference lies in the fact that you may be responsible for comparative negligence meaning that you have some of the responsibility for the injury because you were already aware and should have taken the proper precaution.
