Living in a high rise has its advantages such as easily accessible neighbors and elevators. However, living in a multi-story apartment building also has its disadvantages. One of the most serious disadvantages may be safety if a fire were to occur. While it is the property owner's responsibility to make sure that a building is up to code and reasonably safe from fires, there are things that you, as a renter, can share with your landlord to help prevent New York City fire deaths or injuries.
You know that you have been injured in a maritime accident. Whether you were on a ferry, a cruise around New York Harbor, or a commercial fishing boat off the coast of New Jersey, you expected to return home safely. Yet, something went wrong. You think that something may have been a mechanical failure, but you aren't sure what to do about it. Can you recover damages if the accident was not due to the negligence of the ship owner or operator?
"I had no way of knowing." "I didn't realize it was going to be so bad." Whether these words are true or not may be of little comfort if you have been caught in a serious storm aboard an Atlantic fishing vessel and if you have suffered an injury. However, whether these words are true or not may be very important to your recovery.
You never leave home without it. Without it, you feel like you are missing something essential like a pair of pants or your glasses. Yet, in the chaos of the morning rush, of trying to get to an appointment on time, or in trying to return home quickly, you aren't quite sure where you put it.
You have one overriding concern after a New Jersey or New York construction accident. You have to get help. Immediately, you may need to see a doctor about your physical injuries. You may also need to see a New York construction accident lawyer about your financial injuries. Your primary concern is not reporting a construction accident, nor is it making sure that your employer properly reported your construction accident.
