Building Facade Accidents In New York
Increased Danger in Vertical Neighborhoods
With over 7,000 high rise buildings taller than 115 feet in the city, chances are you’re walking beneath a towering construction of stone, concrete, steel, and glass. Manhattan and Brooklyn contain much higher percentages of these skyscrapers—132 of which stand more than 600 feet in the air.
Common causes of accidental injuries on premises such as retail stores, apartment buildings, and office buildings include:
- Trips on floor mats or rugs
- Failure to properly maintain entryways during inclement weather
- Poor lighting
- Slippery floors
- Malfunctioning elevators
- Defective stairs
- Improperly constructed stairways
- Broken interior and exterior steps
- Lax security
- Building code violations
- Cracked or broken sidewalks
A vigilant and aggressive premises liability attorney will want to know whether such defective conditions were long-standing problems. Interviews with other tenants of a building may provide information as to when or if management had been alerted to hazards such as loose stair railings. The sooner eyewitnesses can be interviewed, the more relevant and reliable the information gathered in an investigation is likely to be.
