Landlords Have A Duty To You
Lots of people across West Islip and Long Island rent. Maybe your landlord is a large corporation, or maybe they’re a small family operation.
Regardless of the relationship you have with your landlord, if they don’t keep up with maintenance and you get an injury because of it, you deserve to pursue compensation.
At Toresco & Simonelli Attorneys At Law, we’re personal injury attorneys local to New York. We know how it is here. While we don’t necessarily know what your day-to-day life is like, we know that you deserve to live in a safe home as a rent-paying consumer. And, if you get injured because your landlord didn’t fix that step, we can help you.
What Landlord Negligence Looks Like
Every house has its issues. Every apartment has its “little charms.” Sometimes things aren’t perfect, and that is fine. However, there are times when “less than perfect” becomes a dangerous hazard like:
- Improperly secured fixtures, such as cabinets
- Elevator mishaps
- Broken staircases
- Dangerous walks
- Risky electrical work
- Falling ceiling tiles
These are instances where your landlord may have known there was an issue and either didn’t act or didn’t take the right action to resolve it. If you receive an injury because your landlord didn’t take the steps necessary to keep your home safe, you have a case.
It’s Not Your Landlord. It’s Their Insurance.
Landlord-tenant relationships are complex. You can love your landlord. You can only think of them on the first of the month. But in a clear case of negligence, where repairs are necessary and medical bills are involved, you may not deal with them. You’ll most likely deal with their insurance, which will fight you on everything.
Our team of attorneys has a combined 30 years of experience providing thorough, aggressive representation in these matters. We can take your case to the insurance company and advocate for you to get the total costs of your treatment covered.
We’re Here To Listen. That’s A Promise.
