New York Landlord Negligence: Your Landlord's Duty to You

Have you ever been hurt because your landlord neglected to fix something that's broken in your building?

If you answered "yes," then you ought to know that landlords and property owners have a responsibility to remedy defective and hazardous conditions in your building and that their failing to do so makes them liable for any injuries that may arise from those conditions. If you can prove that New York landlord negligence is the cause of your injury, you have the legal right to compensation for medical treatment.

Common Injuries That Arise from New York Landlord Negligence

New York landlord negligence law requires landlords to provide their renters safe places to live. A safe place to live should have working smoke detectors, sprinklers and adequate security features. Some of common New York landlord negligence issues include:

  • Scalds caused by improperly functioning water heaters
  • Slips, trips and falls caused by broke railings and floors
  • Cuts and scrapes caused by sharp protrusions
  • Slips, trips and falls on slippery or wet floors
  • Electrocution caused by improperly working appliances
  • Head injuries caused by ceilings caving in
  • Injuries caused by poorly maintained elevators
  • Slips, trips and falls due to poorly lit stairwells and entrances

• Slips, trips and falls due to ragged carpeting

To learn more about such injuries and what legal options may be available to you, call a New York landlord negligence lawyer - preferably one who offers free initial consultation.
