Landlord Liability in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Landlord Liability in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Landlords in New York have certain responsibilities, and failure to live up to these responsibilities can rightly expose them to a personal injury suit should their mistakes hurt you. Personal injury lawyer Charles Rock has decades of experience helping the citizens of Newburgh and other New York communities pursue claims against negligent landlords.

Put simply, landlords can be held liable in a personal injury lawsuit.

The landlord’s obligations include:

  • Making sure the residence is clean and in good condition before you move in
  • Promptly addressing all maintenance issues
  • Ensure the property is safe at all times

If a landlord fails in these tasks, you could be in danger of a significant injury. If this happens to you, you have a right to speak with a personal injury lawyer about your claim.

New York law also forbids landlords from punishing you for pursuing legal remedies, yet many people are reluctant to complain for fear of eviction or other retaliation.

We’ll protect you. Our personal injury lawyer will ensure all of your landlord’s actions are above board. And if you’ve been hurt as a result of your landlord’s negligence, we can pursue justice and compensation.

If you need a skilled personal injury lawyer in the Poughkeepsie, New York area, please contact Charles N. Rock, P.L.L.C for a free initial consultation.
