New York City Premises Liability Attorney
Holding Property Owners Accountable
Land owners are required by law to maintain a certain level of safety both inside and outside on their property for the sake of visitors and residents. There are several types of premises liability cases, including slip and fall accidents. A slip and fall accident refers to a situation in which the victim was injured by a slip, trip, or fall caused by a hazardous situation. These falls can be caused by a number of different factors, such as poor lighting, wet flooring, icy sidewalks, potholes, defective stairs, loose handrails and loose tiles, just to name a few examples.
Premises Liability Claims in New York City
In New York, a successful premises liability lawsuit requires proving that the land owner either caused the dangerous situation or that they were aware of it - or should have been - and yet failed to remedy the condition of their property. The plaintiff must also prove that this defective or dangerous condition was a direct cause of their injury. It is important to move quickly in the event of a personal injury claim involving premises liability so as to build a strong case by collecting all of the necessary supporting evidence. If you've been hurt in a dangerous situation and you believe it to be the fault of the property owner, don't hesitate to enlist the help of a knowledgeable New York City personal injury lawyer who has experience in handling premises liability cases.
