NYC Apartment Fire Injury Lawyer

Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Manhattan Defective Smoke Detector Attorney

Every year, thousands of people throughout the five boroughs of New York City suffer severe injuries and upheaval in their lives due to apartment building fires. While many are traced to the carelessness of other residents or other causes beyond the building owner's control, some could be prevented through greater landlord diligence.

Experienced Legal Advocacy for Burn Victims and Grieving Families

New York premises liability laws, fire codes and building codes are intended to provide apartment dwellers with a range of protections, including reasonable safety measures for fire prevention, fire detection and alerts, and escape if a fire does break out.

Although the fire marshal's report is very important evidence in such cases, we are also prepared to launch a thorough investigation into potential landlord negligence such as:

  • Failure to install, inspect and properly maintain working smoke detectors in all required locations throughout the apartment building and individual units
  • Failure to correct faulty electrical wiring, which can overheat and ignite without warning, anywhere in the building or complex
  • Improper installation of — or failure to inspect and maintain — furnaces, radiators, or gas and electric appliances included with furnished apartments
  • Lack of up-to-code, accessible fire escapes and exit routes that are free of blockage and properly lit

Holding Landlords Accountable for Negligence Leading to Fires and Explosions

If you have lost a loved one and believe it was a preventable, wrongful death, or if you or a loved one has suffered burn injuries or other harm from an apartment fire, you can turn to a caring, experienced lawyer at our firm for sound counsel on your legal options.

Some landlords take every shortcut possible on building maintenance to maximize their own income. Many fail to address known fire dangers until it is too late for their tenants. If you or family members have been victimized and you want answers and just compensation, please request a free consultation with NYC apartment fire injury attorney Nussin S. Fogel today.
