Visitors to homes and businesses expect the property to be reasonably safe. When it is not and an injury results, the property owner or tenant can be held responsible for the damages.
Property owners may be found liable for personal injury cases in premises liability cases. The liability of the property owner is based on whether negligence related to a seriously dangerous property condition caused you to slip and fall or trip and fall and if the property owner or other a responsible person designated to maintain the property knew, was aware of or should have been knowledgeable about the condition that caused your injury.
New York Premises liability law encompasses private residential, commercial and public property owners. However, if you sustained injuries on property owned by the state or certain municipalities, you have a much shorter time frame in which to file your claim. We encourage you to talk to a knowledgeable premises liability attorney as quickly as possible to understand your rights to seeking and recovering just compensation for your injuries and medical expenses.
