What are the common causes of apartment accidents in New York City?

There are a number of different ways that apartment accidents, as well as accidents that occur in apartment complexes, can happen. However, the majority of them are a result of negligence. Generally, this negligence happens because of landlords who fail to ensure that they provide their tenants with safe living conditions. Some of the most common ways apartment accidents happen that our firm has seen the most includes:

  • Hazardous stairwells
  • Unsafe apartment balconies
  • Defective elevators
  • Dangerous air or water conditions
  • Failing to install/maintain smoke or carbon monoxide alarms
  • Unsafe apartment complex sidewalks or parking lots
  • Neglect to remove weather-related hazards, such as snow, in a timely fashion
  • Inadequate lighting or security
  • Unsafe apartment complex playgrounds

What steps should I take if I’m hurt in an apartment accident?

If you were injured because of unsafe apartment conditions, the first step you should take is to call the police, so they can send emergency medical services to the scene. You should also take photos of the unsafe conditions that resulted in your accident and ask any witnesses for their contact information. You should also inform your landlord of the accident. After you seek medical treatment, are in stable condition, and obtain a copy of all medical documentation related to your injuries, you should contact an experienced New York City personal injury attorney who can fight for the damages you need to move forward.

What damages are recoverable in a personal injury claim?

If you and your attorney can successfully satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should be able to recover compensation to help compensate you for some of the physical, financial, and emotional burdens you have sustained because of your injury. This may include the cost of medical bills and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
