Help After Serious Apartment Accidents

Many city dwellers live in apartment buildings that hold up to 56,000 people in a multi-building complex. Whether you are a young child, an elderly citizen, an active teenager or an adult, if you are injured in an apartment building due to the negligence of the property owner — we would like to speak to you.

Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP, is a personal injury law firm focused 100 percent on the representation of the victims of accidents and people with injuries caused by the negligence of others. We are not a general practice. We offer serious help for serious injuries.

We obtained $155,000 for a Bronx girl who lost the tip of her finger when an apartment door closed on her finger. In turns out that the door's hinge was defective.
