Determining Liability After A Personal Injury Accident At An Apartment

The New York State Attorney General’s Office outlines in detail your rights as a tenant in a multi-person dwelling, which is also referred to as an apartment complex. At the Dietrich Law Firm P.C., we understand your legal rights and will hold your landlord accountable if their negligence caused you to suffer a personal injury.

To obtain compensation, a landlord must be negligent and that negligence must lead to your injury. Some elements that may determine liability include:

  1. Whether the dangerous condition that caused your injury fell under the landlord’s responsibility according to the terms of the lease agreement;
  2. Whether the landlord knew or should have known of the dangerous condition;
  3. Whether the landlord made reasonable efforts to remedy a dangerous condition;
  4. Whether the landlord gave proper warning regarding the dangerous condition, such as signs, cones or other markers; or
  5. Whether the injury was foreseeable by the landlord, yet he or she knowingly ignored the dangerous condition.

Apartment Accidents Resulting From Maintenance Neglect

Some accidents result from direct action or inaction by the landlord. These types of accidents include:

  1. Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents because of:
    • Water, snow, ice and other liquid hazards;
    • Uneven carpeting or flooring inside the dwelling;
    • Uneven sidewalks or flooring outside of the dwelling;
    • Improper staircase maintenance;
    • Improper staircase lighting;
    • Hand railings that pull out of the wall because of improper mounting of the hand railing; and
    • Hazards left unattended in stairways, hallways or other common areas.
  2. Elevator accidents.
  3. Unstable balcony accidents.
  4. Lack of or dysfunction of carbon monoxide alarm systems;
  5. Lack of or dysfunction of smoke or fire alarm systems;
  6. Ceiling collapses; and
  7. Improper handling of lead paint, resulting in a medical problem for you or your loved ones, particularly children. (If you live in an older building, see the information regarding lead paint in the Attorney General’s Tenants’ Rights guide.)

Slip and fall or trip and fall incidents are very common in apartment buildings. It is estimated that 12% of falls are slip and fall accidents.

One million hospital visits annually result from slip and fall accidents, and falls cause people to miss more days of work than any other type of accident. People 65 years of age and older are at a much higher risk of fall than people under age 65.

If you, or a loved one, have experienced a fall or another personal injury accident in your apartment building, you may be entitled to compensation.
