New York Apartment Fire Claim – Parties That Can Be Sued
Some property managers, property owners, and landlords put the lives of tenants at risk in order to earn a bit more profit. They take shortcuts without caring about tenants. If it can be established that your landlord’s negligence, in any manner, was partly or fully responsible for fire, it is possible to file a valid claim against the landlord.
Our team of experienced attorneys has handled many such cases and we will do a thorough investigation. In this investigation, our attorneys will look closely at the circumstances that led to the accident in order to identify any potential violations including:
- Violation of the existing fire and building codes
- Failure to inspect and maintain fire extinguishers, sprinklers, smoke detectors as well as other systems and equipment for fire prevention
- Failing to replace or repair damaged and/or defective gas lines, electrical wiring, appliances as well as any other potential sources of fires in a timely fashion
It is also possible that a third party is partly or fully responsible for the fire or they hindered your ability to safely get out of the building. In such cases, it is possible to sue third-party defendants including:
- The contractor that constructed the apartment
- Defective alarm manufacturer
- In case fire was caused by an explosion of a propane tank – the propane company
- In case an electrical issue led to the fire – electrician as well as their employer
- If the fire was caused due to a gas explosion – the gas company
