  • Can I sue if I fell in a vacation rental property?

    I fell at a vacation rental when stepping down a very large step. One side had an extra step and one did not . There was no railing. I broke my foot and then developed blood clots and was in the hospital.

    Gabriel’s Answer

    Assuming the rental was in the United States the real question is why did you fall? Assuming there was a defective condition that caused you to fall you may have a case. You would need to speak with a local plaintiffs attorney to determine the viability of the suit.
