New York City Premises Liability Attorney

Laws Hold Property Owners Accountable

Premises liability refers to laws requiring land owners to maintain certain levels of safety inside and outside of their property for the sake of visitors and residents. Whether the property is a business establishment like a supermarket or a housing complex like an apartment building, there are laws that property owners must abide by. When property owners neglect their duties to keep the area safe, and someone else is injured as a result, the property owner may be held liable in a premises liability claim.

The Basics of Premises Liability

There are some basic rules in any premises liability case. Property owners have a duty to keep a property safe for visitors, and visitors must use the property in a normal or expected manner. In New York, a successful premises liability lawsuit requires the victim to prove that the land owner either caused the dangerous situation or that they should have been aware of it and failed to remedy the condition. As the plaintiff, you must also prove that this defective or dangerous condition was a direct cause of your injury.

To make an effective premises liability claim, you may have to prove the following:

  • You were using the property in a normal/expected manner
  • The property owner owed a duty to keep the property safe for you
  • The property owner neglected their duty to maintain safety
  • The property owner's failure/neglect resulted in your injury

It is important to move quickly in the event of a personal injury claim involving premises liability so that you can build a strong case by collecting all of the necessary evidence. You may be entitled to damages for lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical bills. Jaroslawicz & Jaros, LLC has recovered more than $1 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients. Do not hesitate to enlist the help of a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer in New York City who has experience in handling complex premises liability cases.

Common Types of Premises Accidents

There are several types of premises liability cases. One of the most common cases is a slip and fall accident, in which the victim was injured by a slip, trip, or fall caused by a hazardous situation. A slip and fall accident may occur as a result of any number of hazards in many different kinds of environments, including wet flooring, poor lighting, loose handrails, and defective stairs.

There are many other common types of property-related accidents, such as:

What all premises liability cases have in common is that someone may be held responsible for the injury another person has suffered. If you have been injured on a premises because the property owner failed to maintain safe conditions, you may be able to hold the property owner responsible in your recovery.
