NEW YORK LANDLORD NEGLIGENCE ATTORNEYS

Under New York Law, a property owner has an obligation to maintain his premises in a safe condition. Unfortunately, many landlords do not live up to this obligation. Peña & Kahn, PLLC has successfully represented countless accident victims who were injured as a result of broken stairs, leaky ceilings, dirty hallways faulty windows, and uneven walkways.

Experienced Landlord Negligence Lawyers

Peña & Kahn represents tenants in actions against landlords claiming that injuries occurred because:

  • The building was not secure - If you are the victim of an assault in a building where the landlord failed to provide adequate security or functioning locks that could have prevented the assault, New York holds the landlord responsible. Our law firm has had extensive experience and has achieved great success in suing landlords for failing to provide adequate security.
  • The landlord did not properly maintain the property. Sidewalks were not shoveled or salted. Broken windows were not replaced.
  • The landlord permitted a dangerous environment, by not addressing issues involving toxic substances such as solvents, gasoline, mold and dust. This applies to asbestos and lead-based paint.

Knowledgeable Landlord Negligence Attorneys : Dog Bites

All too often, dogs are being used as weapons rather than pets. The increased popularity of breeds such as the Pit Bull and Rottweiler has made dog attacks a more common occurrence than in the past. Given the strength of these breeds, dog bites can cause severe bodily injury. Our law firm recently prevailed in a trial where the jury awarded our client 1 million dollars after being attacked by a pit bull. The law holds the owner of a vicious animal as well as the property owner responsible for the damage the animal causes where they knew or should have known of the animal's vicious propensities.

Fire Safety Is Another Important Concern

The law also imposes upon property owners the responsibility for fire safety. We represent victims of building fires who have suffered burn injuries and smoke inhalation. Although the fire itself may be accidental, a landlord must still comply with strict fire safety requirements to prevent fires from spreading, and ensure that occupants are able to exit safely.
