Who is Responsible if I am Injured in My Apartment?

New York City contains thousands and thousands of apartment buildings. Of course, many of these apartments are wonderful places to live, in many cases due to the diligence of their landlords. However, landlords do not always put the safety of their tenants first, and when this happens, serious accidents can occur. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced New York City personal injury attorney to learn more about apartment accidents and how our firm can help you if you have been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of apartment accidents?

Apartment accidents can happen for a wide variety of reasons, though unfortunately, they are most frequently a result of negligence on one party’s side, meaning that the accident could have been prevented. Oftentimes, these accidents occur when landlords fail to take the necessary precautions to ensure their apartments are safe before renting them out to tenants. For example, landlords must install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, ensure all flooring is safe, ensure all stairwells are safe, ensure the air quality is clean, and more. Failing to do so can result in serious harm to tenants, and this is unacceptable.

Is my landlord responsible for an apartment accident in New York City?

If you are injured in an apartment accident, there is a very good chance that you are now wondering who the liable party is. In short, if you can prove that your landlord either knew, or should have reasonably known, about the unsafe apartment conditions, failed to fix them, and that you were injured and sustained significant damages as a result, there is a very good chance you will have a valid premises liability lawsuit against that landlord.

How long will I have to sue my landlord for an injury in New York City?

If you are injured in an accident in New York City, you will, generally, have three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. Do not make the mistake of waiting too long to sue, for if you do, there is a very good chance that you will be time-barred from doing so. This is why it is generally best to reach out to our experienced New York attorneys as soon as you possibly can so we can begin the claims process immediately.
