Holding businesses responsible
When you walk into a store, restaurant, entertainment complex or office building, you have the right to expect the premises to be safe and free from hazards. If you are injured because you tripped, slipped or fell, or you had an object crash down on you, the business should compensate you. Some common negligent conditions include:
Even if you were trespassing when the accident occurred, you may have a cause of action against the property owner for your injuries.
New York famously has too few apartments to support the large numbers of potential tenants. However, the dearth of living quarters is no excuse for leaving property in dangerous disrepair. Landlords have a duty to keep residential structures at a certain basic level of safety — including ensuring no hidden defects exist in the walls, floors, hallways, fire escapes, boiler rooms, doors or windows of the buildings. Furthermore, the landlord has a duty to warn you about hazardous conditions until repairs can be made.
