New York Premises Liability Attorneys
Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that their guests are not placed at undue risk of suffering harm due to unsafe conditions on their premises. As the owners of these establishments, they are familiar with the dangerous circumstances that unsuspecting customers and guests could face, and they should address these problems before someone gets hurt. Unfortunately, this responsibility is not always upheld, potentially causing dangerous accidents and serious injuries to occur. For this reason, property owners may be held liable for their negligence in placing others in harm’s way.

Why You Need An Attorney

Your lawsuit is only fair because the hazards on the property caused you harm. Oftentimes, serious injuries force the victim to take time off of work to recover.

How can a property owner be held accountable for my injuries on their property?
According to tort law, a tort is a legal term for an action or inaction that caused another person to suffer, which inevitably leads to civil legal liability. Tort law mandates that people act reasonably to prevent avoidable injuries from taking place and failing to do so can expose them to lawsuits in a civil court. Injuries that occur on someone’s property fall under this area of the law, since they must protect guests and visitors from harm.
What type of evidence is needed to prove my claim?
A thorough investigation is required to prove the other party’s liability in court successfully. The attorney who represents your case will likely reach out to other professionals who are experts in their field to evaluate architecture, engineering, and design flaws. Your attorney will be able to determine the next course of action once the facts are gathered.
What should I do if the other person’s insurance company tries to contact me?
Do not speak with an insurance agent until after you have received counsel from an attorney. Insurance representatives are trained to ask questions that can be used against you to diminish your claim. You do not have to discuss anything with the insurance company, provide any statements, or sign any documentation. If you do, it may prevent you from being able to seek financial compensation for your injuries.
Who is responsible for my injuries?
Depending on how your accident occurred, many parties may hold responsibility. For instance, if you were injured after falling over an uneven or damaged city sidewalk, the local municipality could be liable for failing to maintain the public pathway. If your accident took place in a building that is used for business, then the owners of the business, the property owner, and the management company could all be named as defendants. Schools can also be held responsible for a variety of accidents and injuries. If school officials were aware of another student’s capacity to cause harm, then they may be liable for that student causing harm to your child. It is essential to speak with a qualified New York premises liability attorney to discuss the relevant facts surrounding your claim.
Is time a factor?
Yes, the statute of limitations requires all claims involving personal injury to be filed within a strict timeline. Failing to do so will prevent you from taking legal action to obtain what is legally owed to you. Different rules apply to certain claims, and it may depend on if you are filing a lawsuit against a business, private owner, municipality, or school. It is critical that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible to defend your rights.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of an accident caused by a property owner’s negligence, you should not have to bear this burden alone.
