A Warning to Negligent Apartment Building Landlords in New York From Personal Injury Lawyer, David Perecman



New York, NY (PRWEB) March 3, 2010

According to yesterday’s New York Post , many buildings in New York are being left to fall apart. New York personal injury lawyers, familiar with the situation, point to a decline in maintenance, repairs and security. Among the many specific problems residents report: lack of heat, concrete balconies with cracks, rodent infestation, piles of garbage, consistently temperamental elevators, and broken door locks.

Landlords of many of these buildings are blaming the economy for their lapse in building care. For example, some have discovered that they owe more than their properties are worth. Building bankruptcy is also a cause of unpaid utility bills. Some landlords are trying to reduce their losses by cutting corners on the basic maintenance. Other property owners have abandoned the property altogether.

Tenants feel abandoned, and, even more troubling, afraid for their safety.

New York personal injury lawyers want property owners and anyone else who owns or manages an apartment building in New York to know that they are ultimately responsible for making sure that the building is safe for both residents and visitors, no matter what the state of the economy is.

“A slip and fall injury or an assault resulting from a hazard that the landlord or manager knew about – or should have known about – entitles the victim to justice, often achieved through a claim or a lawsuit,” said David Perecman of New York, a personal injury lawyer with a practice in midtown.

In New York, personal injury lawyers are all too familiar with the consequences of these types of accidents and they are ready to fight to get their clients the compensation they deserve. At the Perecman firm, personal injury lawyers have worked with victims who have lost work, experienced pain and suffering and/or have been permanently impaired by an accident on a property owned by a negligent landlord.

If you or a loved one suffered slip and fall injuries in an apartment accident in New York, you should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who is familiar with these types of cases. A lawyer like David Perecman can get you the compensation you deserve.

New York Personal Injury Lawyers Prepare to Move In as Struggling Landlords Create Dangerous Living Conditions for Tenants




New York, NY (PRWEB) July 30, 2009

As reported by the New York Times, landlords are struggling to pay their mortgages. It’s a story being repeated throughout neighborhoods around New York, according to personal injury lawyers.

More than a financial nightmare for the owners, residents of the abandoned apartment buildings are being left in a dangerous limbo. As the landlords vacate their responsibility, buildings are being left in a state of perilous disrepair and with non-existent security. Many tenants are even being left without basic services including heat and hot water.

With conditions like these escalating, New York personal injury lawyers expect to hear from more and more tenants injured by inhospitable building conditions.

“What many landlords don’t appear to realize is that if something happens on their property, they are responsible for it and the financial consequences can be as enormous- and even more so – then the ones they are abandoning in the neighborhoods around New York,” personal injury lawyer David Perecman explained.

A landlord has a duty to keep the apartment and the building fit to live in. If a tenant can show, for example, that a trip or slip and fall was a result of a hazardous condition like a broken stair, and the landlord either knew or should have known of the problem, the landlord can be held responsible for the tenant’s injury. As explained by New York personal injury attorney Perecman, this also means that the landlord must do the things agreed to in your lease, including doing all necessary repairs.

Many of these landlords bought their buildings in recent years when the real estate market was booming. Now, the unstable situation is growing because those same landlords are struggling to make mortgage payments. They don’t have the thousands of dollars they need for building repairs either. Left unchecked, poorly maintained buildings not only threaten the health and safety of the people living there, they threaten to destabilize entire blocks.

If a person is injured due to a hazardous condition on someone’s else’s property, in New York or elsewhere, they should see the advice of an experienced personal injury or slip and fall lawyer right away.
