Premises liability is based on the concept that property owners and residents 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.
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 streets and sidewalks, businesses, construction sites, hotels, office buildings, and 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.
When a property owner or resident does not fix these dangerous conditions or provide adequate warning of the property’s condition and someone is injured on that property, the injury victim should consult a knowledgeable attorney about pursuing a a premises liability claim. Typically, negligent property owners and managers, business owners, and government entities, who have not taken care of property or have deferred making necessary repairs, can be held liable for not providing a safe environment for residents and visitors.
