THINKING ABOUT YESTERDAY
Q: One evening, while thinking about yesterday and going down a
stairway in a two-family house, I fell. I had rented the upstairs apartment for
over 20 years. It was always too dark in that stairway. In addition, there was
a loose top step and a loose screw on the landing. One or more of these conditions
is why I fell. My friend says it’s my own fault: after all those years, I
should have known better.
A: Until 1975, under the doctrine of ‘contributory negligence’, a
personal-injury victim was required to prove himself or herself free from even
the slightest degree of negligence in contributing to the occurrence. You had
no suit for negligence, if you had contributed, in the slightest degree, to the
accident. Your landlady's negligence was not sufficient to justify a recovery.
Two elements were necessary, her negligence being one, and your freedom
from contributory negligence being the other.
All that changed in 1975, when the Legislature replaced the rule of
contributory negligence with a policy of comparative negligence.
A property owner, or a party in possession or control of real
property, has a duty to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition.
He or she has constructive notice of a hazardous condition on property when
the condition is visible and apparent, and has existed for a sufficient length of
time to afford a reasonable opportunity to discover and remedy it. It seems
that your landlady fits that bill. Consult an attorney.
