Holding Property Owners Accountable

Property owners are responsible for providing a reasonably safe environment for renters and guests. If you are injured in a fire or explosion due to an unsafe condition or code violation, you have the right to seek full compensation from the property owner. This area of law is known as premises liability.

Here are some examples of unsafe conditions and code violations that can lead to injuries and deaths in a fire:

  • Blocked emergency exits
  • Security bars over doors and windows that prevent people inside a building from getting out
  • Nonfunctioning smoke alarms
  • Faulty appliances or wiring
  • Unsafe storage of flammable chemicals
  • Faulty work on gas appliances
  • Faulty wiring

While nothing can undo the devastating loss you have experienced in a fire, the civil justice system can send a strong message to property owners that New Yorkers do not tolerate unsafe conditions and code violations that can lead to injuries and deaths.
