Can I Sue My Landlord for an Injury in New York City?

Though most of us feel safe in our own homes, the unfortunate reality is that if we rent, we are, in large part, at the mercy of our landlords. Landlords own the property, which means they are responsible for ensuring the property is reasonably safe. Unfortunately, people are often seriously injured because of landlord negligence, and when they are, they wonder whether they have grounds to successfully sue their landlord for negligence. Whether you were hurt in a slip and fall because of unsafe property conditions, fell down a defective stairway, or were otherwise wrongfully hurt as a tenant, you must continue reading and reach out to our experienced Bronx slip and fall lawyer to learn more about these cases and whether you can sue your landlord for your injury. Here are some of the questions you may have:

Can I sue my landlord for an injury sustained in my apartment?

While yes, you absolutely can sue your landlord for an injury, the key in recovering compensation for the damages you’ve sustained is proving that you were injured as a direct result of your landlord’s negligence. For example, if you can prove that it snowed and your landlord failed to remove the snow within the legally-acceptable timeframe, and you slipped and were injured as a result, you should have a valid premises liability claim. Our firm can help assess your case, determine whether you have a claim, and then gather evidence to help prove your personal injury claim on your behalf.

What damages can I recover in a premises liability claim?

If you win your personal injury claim, you may recover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages will help you deal with the financial cost of your accident, such as the cost of medical care and rehabilitation, as well as lost wages. Non-economic damages deal with other, intangible damages, such as the loss of enjoyment of life or pain and suffering.

Do I have to file a personal injury claim within a certain period of time?

Yes. In most cases, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is three years. This means you mustn’t wait longer than three years from the date your accident happened to pursue financial compensation for the injuries you sustained. If you were hurt in an accident because of a negligent landlord, we are prepared to assist you today. All you need to do is reach out.
