Finding suitable housing for rent is a vital part of living in the city for millions of New Yorkers. Renters are dependent on their landlord for safe and reasonable conditions in the apartments and condos in which they live. Should a landlord fail to keep the property up to code or in repair, the renters can directly suffer. In time, this can lead to serious injuries or even illnesses that could have been prevented had the landlord fulfilled his or her responsibility to keep the property maintained.
We are fully aware of the struggles and obstacles that await you after an injury, and we are prepared to help you along the way. We fight on behalf of our clients to help them obtain justice after they are victimized by no fault of their own. During a complimentary consultation, we can discuss your options and detail how we intend on representing you throughout negotiations or trial.
Our lawyers work to help you receive compensation that can cover expenses, such as:
- Hospital bills
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Moving fees
Advocating for Tenants Throughout New York City
At Sullivan & Brill, LLP, we advocate on behalf of renters across the city, helping to file claims of landlord negligence. Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the maintenance and care of the apartment, as well as all city safety codes for residential properties.
Unsafe rental conditions can vary widely to include dangerous railings and staircases, elevators that have not undergone maintenance or inspection, lead-based paint, uninsulated steam pipes, slippery surfaces, poorly maintained water heaters and other appliances, inadequate security, and all other unsafe conditions for which the owner is responsible. These conditions can lead to serious injuries for tenants or other individuals visiting the building.
We will advocate on your behalf, working to recover the compensation you are owed for costly medical and repair bills. Our firm has been successful in a wide range of premises liability matters, obtaining many settlements and verdicts, and our lawyers are equipped to fight on your behalf.
