New York Premises Liability Lawyers
What to Do If You Were Injured on Someone Else’s Property
Premises liability is based on the concept that property owners are responsible for maintaining a relatively safe environment. If you have been injured due to an unsafe condition while on someone else’s property, you may be able to pursue a premises liability claim and be compensated for your injury.
It’s important that you reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you file your claim. Premises liability claims are often very complex; you will have to prove that the property owner not only owed you a duty of care but also that he or she failed to uphold this duty of care by failing to maintain the property or repair/warn of a dangerous condition that could cause foreseeable harm. You will also have to prove that you were injured because of the property owner’s negligence.

Where Do Premises Liability Accidents Occur?
Although most premises liability accidents in New York occur at apartment buildings, unsuspecting people can be injured due to a premises liability accident at many types of locations.
These include but are not limited to:
- Streets and sidewalks
- Construction sites
- Office buildings
- Amusement parks
Unsafe conditions—such as broken glass, cracks in floors, uneven pavement, slippery surfaces, broken stairs, inadequate lighting, and falling objects—can lead to serious injury accidents.
Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable
When a property owner does not fix dangerous conditions or provide adequate warning of the property’s condition and someone is injured as a result, the injured victim should consult a knowledgeable attorney about pursuing a premises liability claim. Typically, negligent property owners and managers, business owners, and government entities that have not taken care of a property or have deferred making necessary repairs can be held liable for not providing a safe environment for residents and visitors.
