Landlord Affiliate Not Responsible for Injury in Apartment
LVT Number: #25267
Tenant's home health care worker sued tenant, landlord cooperative corporation, unit owner, the building's managing agent, and the managing agent's affiliated company for damages after she was injured in tenant's apartment. The worker claimed that her right eye was injured when a portion of the apartment's bathroom ceiling fell down. She said landlord and others failed to maintain the building in a safe condition. National Birchwood, an affiliate of the managing agent Birchwood Associates, asked the court to dismiss the complaint against its company.
