Holding Property Owners Accountable For Falls, Assaults And Other Injuries
How many times has someone you know fallen and assumed it was because they were clumsy or careless, or that it was just an accident? Have you or someone you know been robbed or assaulted at an apartment complex or store?
The property owner is under an obligation to keep the property reasonably safe. Landlords must provide certain security, such as door locks and intercoms and window guards, and must keep their property in good repair. Health codes require sanitary conditions and the removal of lead paint under certain circumstances. New York’s laws exist to protect you. We help you understand your rights and legal remedies as a tenant.
Representation For Slip-And-Falls And Other Premises Liability
The Law Office of Bradley A. Sacks holds property owners accountable under the premises liability laws of New York. We welcome the opportunity to consult with you to determine if a personal injury lawsuit should be filed to recover your medical bills and costs, lost wages or any permanent physical disability, pain and suffering, disfigurement and emotional distress you may have sustained due to:
- Injuries sustained from a slip- or trip-and-fall accident
- Injuries caused by a dangerous condition at a business location
- Injuries caused by unlit or dangerous sidewalks and stairways
- Assault, sexual assault or robbery because of broken locks or other negligent security
Landlords Are Accountable For Other Losses Too
Has your apartment been flooded from rain or poor maintenance and now has mold covering the walls and ceilings? You need not suffer poor health or damage to your belongings. Landlords must provide a sanitary habitable place for you to live, remedy the condition and, under certain circumstances, pay your expenses while they do so.
