Defective Maintenance of Buildings and Property

Owners and occupiers of residential and commercial properties in New York have a responsibility to properly maintain their facilities in order to prevent dangerous circumstances and potentially serious personal injuries. If you have suffered an injury as the result of defective maintenance of buildings and property, our legal team at Leav & Steinberg LLP will work closely with you to help develop a winning case that can earn you the compensation you deserve.

Defective Maintenance of Buildings and Property in New York

Defective maintenance of buildings and property cases are subject to premises liability laws, which govern how property owners and occupiers must maintain their properties to ensure the safety of all residents, employees, and guests. Maintenance responsibilities include all areas of the property, including stairways, elevators, lobbies, and apartments on the inside, and sidewalks, courtyards, driveways, and walkways on the outside. If a property owner or occupier fails to properly maintain these areas and someone is injured as a result of that negligence, the injured party is owed compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, missed time from work, and other accident-related losses.

Injuries Related to Defective Maintenance of Buildings and Property

When an owner or occupier of a commercial or residential property in New York fails to adequately maintain the premises, residents, employees, and guests may fall victim to a wide variety of accidents and personal injuries:

  • Slips and falls
  • Injuries due to inadequately trained staff
  • Accidents due to faulty lighting or electrical wiring
  • Injuries due to improperly designed stairs and doorways

If you have sustained injuries due to defective building and property maintenance, you must contact a legal team with proven premises liability experience as soon as possible.

★★★★★
I had a great experience with this law firm for my personal injury case. I was referred to them by another attorney who did not handle the type of case I had and from the beginning I felt I was in good hands by Edward Averbach, Esq., Edward Steinberg, Esq. and the paralegals that worked my case.
