Every day, people throughout New York are hurt at their apartment complexes. Unfortunately, landlord negligence is to blame for many of these injuries. Simple mistakes or failure to correct dangerous conditions can have serious consequences. When they do, landlords should be held responsible for their negligence.
At the Law Offices of Barry M. Goldstein, I am dedicated to helping victims of landlord negligence get the compensation they deserve. With more than 25 years of experience, I can help you understand your rights and fight for the payment you are entitled to.
Dangerous Property Conditions in New York
When you pay your rent each month, you expect your landlord to live up to his or her side of the bargain. You expect to live in a safe environment. When you report dangerous conditions, you expect them to be corrected.
When landlords fail to live up to those expectations, they should be held responsible.
As an experienced lawyer, I am passionate about providing personal attention for victims of personal injury. I will help you recover payment for your medical bills, lost wages and other damages resulting from landlord negligence such as:
- Dangerous sidewalks in front of building
- Improper lighting
- Dangerous stairways
- Slippery floors
- Lead paint
- Inadequate security
- Improper locks
- Improper wiring leading to electrical fires
- Elevator defects
- Faulty water heaters
- Failure to install proper child guard rails
These are only some examples of the kinds of landlord negligence that leads to serious accidents. When you are hurt on property that is owned by someone else, it is important to protect your right to compensation.
