Common Areas of Apartment Complexes Can Be Dangerous

If you or a loved one was injured in an apartment complex accident, a New York attorney can listen to your case and explain the legal process as it relates to your situation. Schedule a free consultation at our Queens office to discuss your case with an experienced lawyer.

Property owners and managers have a duty to keep common areas safe for both residents and visitors. Common areas in an apartment complex, unfortunately, can become hazardous for any number of reasons: broken tiles, cracked pavement, torn carpeting, broken stairs and jagged metal handrails can lead to serious accidents and injuries. At Cohen & Cohen Law Group, P.C., we have represented countless clients who suffered a variety of injuries, ranging from broken bones to head trauma. If you fell victim to dangerous conditions while visiting an apartment complex, contact our firm at once.

BATTLING RECURRING CONDITIONS

You might not have been the first person who was injured on a property. It is not uncommon for us to uncover numerous other injuries in an area while investigating your accident. When an area suffers from improper maintenance, and always seems to be dirty, this is called a recurring condition. Common recurring conditions can include:

  • A staircase that's always covered in debris
  • The area around a garbage chute that's always dirty
  • A handrail that never gets fixed
  • A hallway that always has broken lights

After an accident, it is wise to discuss your matter with a lawyer. It's possible that your slip-and-fall accident indicates that a dangerous area led to injuries before and that it was never fixed or corrected to prevent your injury from occurring.
