Premises Liability/Slip and Fall Accidents

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?" Has someone you know or have you 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 removal of lead paint under certain circumstances. Both New York City and State laws exist to protect you.

The Law Offices of Bradley A. Sacks welcomes the opportunity to consult with you to determine if a lawsuit should be filed to recover your medical bills and costs, lost wages or any permanent physical disability, pain suffering, disfigurement and emotional distress you may have sustained, due to:

  • An injury sustained from a slip and fall accident
  • An injury caused by a dangerous condition at a business location
  • Injuries caused by ingestion of lead paint
  • Being the victim of a crime because of a premises liability issue

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.

The Law Offices of Bradley A. Sacks has the proven experience to assess your situation.  We work with security consultants, professional engineers and investigators to help determine the cause of the accident or condition, protect your rights and, perhaps, prevent the same thing from happening to someone else.
