New Trial Needed on Tenant's Slip-and-Fall Injury
LVT Number: #31153
Tenant sued the City of New York and landlord Allen Affordable HDFC for damages resulting from personal injuries. Tenant slipped and fell on the wet interior stairs of the three-story apartment building. At the time of the accident, which occurred at 10 p.m., the building had been without running water for at least two days, as a result of a broken pipe in the basement. Tenant presented evidence at trial that the building super had opened the fire hydrant outside the building to supply tenants with water.
