Were You Injured In A NYC Apartment Building?
New York City is one of the most densely populated areas in the country and, therefore, apartment living is extremely popular.
While people may rent or own the unit that they live in, landlords and homeowners’ associations are responsible for maintaining buildings and ensuring that residents and their visitors are not at risk. When unsafe conditions exist, you and your loved ones may be in danger of being injured.
Common Apartment Building Issues
Because so many people live in them, apartment buildings have numerous areas where accidents can occur. Some common things that can lead to injuries include:
- Uneven flooring
- Unsafe stairways and elevators
- Broken or cracked sidewalks
- Inadequate security, including a lack of proper lighting
- Lead paint
- Bad windows, doors and ceilings
- Electrical problems
- Appliance fires
