Housing Authority Accidents

The complexities of filing a claim against the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) require the help of an attorney experienced in this specific area of personal injury law. While providing a service for low- and moderate-income New Yorkers, the NYCHA must also adhere to strict standards of safety for public housing and apartments. At the Brooklyn Law Offices of David J. Hernandez & Associates, our attorneys have the comprehensive background you need if injuries were the result of negligent acts by the NYCHA.

Established in 1934, the New York City Housing Authority provides public housing for low- and moderate-income residents in the five boroughs and administers a Section 8 Leased Housing Program in rental apartments throughout the city. Accidents that occur on their property because of poor care and maintenance of the grounds demand the attention of a lawyer at Law Offices of David J. Hernandez & Associates. Do not assume the accident is your fault. Do not talk to the NYCHA or an insurance provider until you meet with us.

Cracks in sidewalks, loose railings and icy surfaces that are not attended to can result in serious back, neck and head injuries. Spinal cord damage could also be the outcome of a slip-and-fall and lead to paralysis. While you need medical care for injuries, you need a legal advocate to stand by your side, get to the facts and hold the responsible party accountable.
