Hold New York Landlords Accountable For Dangerous Living Conditions

New York building safety codes require apartment owners to take specific measures to keep tenants safe. The State has also put measures in place to hold landlords accountable for dangerous conditions.

The 19-story Twin Parks North West apartment complex was built in 1972. If a building this old is not maintained on a regular basis, it could become extremely dangerous to occupy. During a lawsuit, your lawyer will need to prove that building negligence caused or contributed to the fire.

  • Conducting independent investigations to make sure the truth is uncovered
  • Identifying safety violations that may have led to this Bronx Apartment Fire
  • Bringing in expert witnesses offering professional statements related to such situations
  • Identifying all liable parties so that all who were responsible pay for the negligence
