Building Defects

New York Building Defect Lawsuit Attorneys

The majority of New York's residents live and work in buildings owned, operated and maintained by landlords, superintendents and property owners.  Landlords, superintendents and property owners are required by law to comply with safety standards.  A building defect lawsuit can arise when a person is injured because of a building's defect.  At LaRock & Perez, L.L.P., we help injured people pursue building defect lawsuits and obtain fair compensation.
Were you or someone you know injured because of landlord negligence?  Answers and help are available.  Contact a lawyer from LaRock & Perez, L.L.P. today to arrange your free consultation.

Injured in a defective building?  We can help with a building defect lawsuit.

As experienced trial attorneys, we vigorously pursue compensation for our injured clients.  We stand our ground and do not hesitate to proceed to trial.  You can feel confident in our services and our commitment to you.  LaRock & Perez, LLP has the skilled attorneys, proven results and financial resources to fight for their clients and will never recommend or accept an unjust offer.  We can help you or a loved one pursue a building defect lawsuit related to issues such as:
  • Unguarded windows
  • Faulty HVAC (heating, ventilating and air conditioning) systems
  • Faulty smoke detectors, smoke alarms and other fire safety systems
  • Lead paint
  • Faulty plumbing
  • Improperly maintained elevators
Window guards are the law

A fall from a window - even a window just one story up - can be fatal, especially to a young child.  New York law requires that window guards be installed in apartments where children live.  The window guards must be metal, strong and approved by the Health Department.  Landlords are responsible for installing window guards.

Other building defects

Our firm also represents people who have sustained injuries from dog bites and injuries that arise from negligent security.  Negligent security can lead to assault, battery, rape and sexual assault.  As a tenant or visitor to a building, you have the right to expect reasonable security.

If you have been injured because of a building defect, contact LaRock & Perez, L.L.P today to arrange your consultation.
