Injured On A Rooftop, Or By Falling Off One?
A tall building in New York City must have a rooftop exit as a fire escape option. This means the rooftop is accessible by the tenants and guests of the building. This also means that a fight atop a rooftop can end with one or the other combatant falling to his or her death from the rooftop.
There are some building complexes with as many as 56,000 people living in the complex. The building can become segregated, with certain ethnic groups occupying a group of floors. The rooftop becomes a problem when a fight breaks out between these groups of people and the fight extends to the rooftop.
Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP, is a New York law firm that represents people who are injured due to the negligence, mistakes or fault of another party. We are 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 a $500,000 settlement for a client who was gang raped on a rooftop. The attackers had disabled the alarm on the roof so they couldn’t be identified. Nevertheless, our firm was able to show that the owners of the building were negligent because they failed to install an alarm system that would alert security personnel if it were disconnected.
