New York Premises Liability Lawyer

New York property owners have specific obligations under local, state, and federal laws. In NYC, property owners have a responsibility to keep their property and their buildings safe for visitors and those with businesses there.

If you have sustained injuries on someone else’s property as a result of a New York owner’s or tenant’s negligence, a premises liability claim can be brought against the negligent party in order to collect compensation. This can provide you with monetary damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings and other costs associated with your injuries.

The circumstances present in unsafe premises cases can take many forms, often involving risks such as wet floors, uneven sidewalks, icy surfaces, poor lighting, poorly constructed stairs or floors, aggressive dogs and negligent security. Premises liability suits can be brought against a variety of parties, including commercial businesses, landlords, tenants, and homeowners.

Slips, Trips And Falls

Thousands of people are injured each year when they fall due to a slippery surface or uneven area. The key to determining whether an accident is the result of negligence is determining the answer to this question: Should the property owner or tenants have known about the unsafe conditions and taken action? Witnesses can be the key to finding the answer and in providing corroborating evidence to present to juries, which are often skeptical of these claims. So too, a safety expert may provide useful perspective and testimony if needed.
