Can I Sue My Landlord if I Am Injured in an Apartment Accident?

There are few things worse than feeling unsafe in your own home. Unfortunately, if you are someone who was recently injured in an apartment accident due to no fault of your own, you most likely now require financial compensation to heal. Please continue reading and speak with our Bronx personal injury lawyer to learn more about apartment accidents and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of apartment accidents in the Bronx?

Apartment accidents happen for a wide array of reasons, though in many cases, they are the result of a negligent landlord. Some of them ost common types of landlord negligence include failing to ensure that parking lots and sidewalks are free of weather-related hazards, failing to provide sufficient security, dangerous living conditions such as asbestos, having unsafe or damaged floors, having unsafe stairwells, failing to install smoke detectors/carbon monoxide detectors, and more.

What should I do if I am injured in an apartment accident?

After sustaining an injury in an apartment accident, you should take several steps to maximize your chances of winning a personal injury claim. Those steps are as follows:

  1. Call the police.
  2. Notify your landlord.
  3. Take pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident.
  4. Ask any witnesses for their contact information.
  5. Seek immediate medical treatment.
  6. Ask your doctor for all documentation regarding the extent of your injuries.
  7. Retain the services of a knowledgeable Bronx personal injury lawyer.

How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim?

To win a personal injury claim, your attorney will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, in this case, your landlord. As long as we obtain sufficient evidence to prove as much, you should win your personal injury claim. That being said, you should be sure to file your claim as soon as possible, as there is a statute of limitations in place that regulates the amount of time the wrongly injured have to take legal action against the liable party. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is, generally, three years, meaning you will have three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. We are ready to file a claim on your behalf today.
