Tenants have an array of specific rights, among which is the right to a safe home kept free of danger. Chief amongst your safety considerations as a tenant should be the stairs to and from your home. If those are unsafe, you run the risk of suffering severe injuries that can be debilitating and even life-threatening. You should check your stairs in the following respects to be quite sure that they are safe.

What do you need to file a wrongful death suit?

A person dying is a tragedy for his or her own sake and the sake of those who loved this individual. Depending upon the the circumstances of their deaths, there may be cause for legal action. If you have lost someone you care about, you may be considering filing a wrongful death suit. Before you do, it is important to consider if the case qualifies.

Dangerous conditions could be more minor than you realize

When people hear the term "dangerous conditions," they often think of things that are blatantly and obviously dangerous, such as having a balcony or a catwalk without a railing. They may also think of things like snow and ice, which can cause a slip and fall accident. While these are well known and certainly represent some level of threat, it's important to note that many dangerous conditions are more minor than most people realize.
