It’s been reported that a malfunctioning space heater caused the Twin Parks North West fire in the Bronx on January 9, 2022. Rosa Reyes and Felix Martinez are the first of the fire’s victims to file a lawsuit for damages – and not against the individual who owned the space heater.
Instead, the Reyes and Martinez lawsuit levels charges against LIHC Investment Group, the Camber Property Group, and Belveron Partners. The couple also filed a notice of claim with New York City officials.
If you lost family or property in the Bronx’s January apartment fire, you can fight for your rights in court. Discuss your case with our team to see what compensation a personal injury claim, wrongful death claim, or fire victim lawsuit in the Bronx may entitle you to.
Overcoming Your Financial Losses
Families who lost their homes and loved ones in the Bronx apartment fire may be entitled to financial support covering their economic and non-economic losses. These can include:
- Injuries related to the fire
- Pain management and upcoming treatments
- Loss of personal property
- Essential property repairs
- Pain and suffering
- PTSD and long-term trauma
- Wrongful death
- Funeral expenses
You can calculate and present an estimate of your compensation to the county clerks serving the Bronx and Greater New York. For example, the Reyes and Martinez lawsuit requests $3 billion in response to accident losses with a request to classify the case as a class-action suit.
Naming Your Liable Party
The Reyes and Martinez lawsuit claims that the aforementioned apartment managers failed to maintain the self-closing doors used throughout the complex. The suit also highlights other rights and responsibilities failures, including improper door maintenance and faulty smoke detectors.
These alleged oversights endangered everyone in the complex during the fire. If you want to file a fire victim lawsuit, you can name the apartment complex’s owners as the party liable for their losses. Other groups that can face charges for these oversights include the parties who sold the land the complex was on in 2019.
