How is your New York landlord required to keep your rental safe?

Accidents happen in and around the home all the time. In many cases, you might be the one responsible for getting hurt. For example, you might have climbed onto an unstable chair to change a lightbulb and fallen. You could have reached into a sink full of soapy water and grabbed a sharp knife and cut yourself. However, in other cases your landlord or property manager might be held liable for an accident at your apartment or rental home in Schenectady.

Falls threaten an aging population

Protecting oneself from slip-and-fall accidents may seem like a full-time job in the often chaotic modern world. Now that Americans are experiencing unprecedented life expectancy, as revealed by Time Magazine, it could be even more vital to be cautious to prevent injuries that may have lasting consequences. With potential lifespans topping 78 years, people would be well advised to keep the risks of falling in mind as they age.

The risk of drowning is a concern over the summer season

However, unintentional drowning poses a very serious threat to both children as well as adults, and as a result the proper steps must be taken to ensure a safe and secure experience when spending the day swimming.
