When people move into a new apartment, they expect the premises to be safe and secure from potential dangers. For the most part, landlords keep up their end of the bargain by tending to the grounds, conducting maintenance, and making sure everything in an apartment complex is working properly for their tenants. Unfortunately, not every apartment building stacks up against New York City’s housing laws.
If you have suffered an injury in your apartment complex, you may be wondering what options you have. You need to consult with an experienced New York City personal injury attorney to properly understand your options and get the necessary support to fight for your legal rights.
New York City is known for many things, including its old, historic buildings. With so many different types of apartment buildings in close proximity to each other, there’s no shortage of properties that are poorly maintained. It’s unfortunate that many landlords try to skirt by the city’s housing laws by making their properties appear safe while several potential dangers lurk in the foundation, plumbing, or walls.
Among the possible accidents someone can have in a New York City apartment complex, some of the most common include:
It is the responsibility of apartment owners to ensure the reasonable safety of all their tenants. If they fail to properly maintain the premises and a renter sustains a serious injury, that owner is liable. When you are involved in a serious accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to seek financial compensation that covers any medical expenses, lost income, and even emotional pain that resulted from the injury.
There are many different hazards that can be found in a New York City apartment complex, and if property owners neglect even one of them, it’s important to hold them accountable. To get the help you need to fight for your rights and receive what you deserve, you need a talented New York apartment injury attorney.
