Do Waivers or Disclaimers Protect Landlords from Personal Injury Suits?

Personal Injury Lawyer Buffalo NY

  • Landlords sometimes try to “mitigate their damages” by inserting clauses in lease contracts to prevent tenants from suing them.
  • A landlord cannot contractually preclude themselves of the results of their negligence because such language could effectively obviate landlords’ responsibility for upkeep of their premises.
  • Such language will be routinely dismissed by courts of competent jurisdiction.

Client Reviews

  • I was offered 0 on a low impact accident. After long litigation I was offered 100,000 which mr maranto rejected. I ended up with 235,000. I would definately use this firm again.

  • So far, so good! This law office appears to have it's stuff together. And I like the fact that they don't have to advertise like the the the other 2 law firms with the 444444 and the 888888 numbers which tells me they get a lot of word of mouth advertising..the best kind. Also I called one of the 444 and/or 888 numbers and the attorney was very short and rude. After my case I will do a follow up to let you all know how my complete experience was.
