Apartment Accidents in the Bronx | What You Should Know

Though the city is full of great apartment complexes, not all apartments are safe. Unfortunately, many people are injured in apartment accidents every single year, and if this has happened to you, you most likely now require financial compensation to help you heal. Please continue reading and reach out to an experienced Bronx personal injury lawyer here at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about how our legal team can effectively guide you through every step of the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do most apartment accidents happen?

Apartment accidents occur for several reasons, however, as you can imagine, they are oftentimes caused by negligence. In many cases, apartment accidents happen when landlords fail to ensure that their apartments are safe before renting them out to potential tenants. Some of the most common causes of apartment accidents/injuries are as follows:

  • Failing to install smoke detectors
  • Failing to install carbon monoxide detectors
  • Inadequate security
  • Unsafe complex playground conditions
  • Unsafe complex sidewalk conditions
  • Failing to remove weather-related hazards from the sidewalk timely
  • Unsafe complex parking lots
  • Disturbed asbestos
  • Unsafe drinking water
  • Dangerous stairwells
  • Dangerous elevators/escalators

What should I do if I’m hurt in an apartment accident?

If you are injured in an apartment accident, you should work to document the incident as best as you can. This means that you should photograph the unsafe property conditions, take pictures of your injuries, ask witnesses for their contact information, seek immediate medical treatment, and call the police to the scene, especially if you are unable to get up or are otherwise very seriously injured. You should also ensure that you retain the services of an experienced Bronx personal injury lawyer who can fight for the compensation you need to heal.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in NYS?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York City is, generally, three years, which means that all those who’ve been wrongfully injured must not wait any longer than three years from the date of their accident to take legal action against the liable party. Our firm is ready to assist you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
