New York Premises Liability Lawyers
Who Is at Fault in a Premises Liability Case?
Premises liability cases involve negligence, just as in any other personal injury case. In these types of cases, the victim becomes injured on property that should have reasonably been kept safe or well-maintained. But, as a result of the property owner’s negligence, the victim sustains significant losses, including both financial and intangible losses, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.
At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, we represent those injured due to dangerous property conditions and property owner negligence. If you believe you have a case and would like to explore your legal options, please reach out to our firm to request an appointment.
What Is Premises Liability?
Note that just because you were hurt on another person’s property, it will not automatically mean that you have a premises liability case. In order to bring a claim, you will need to prove that the property owner was somehow negligent. To add to this, unsafe or poorly maintained conditions would be insufficient grounds to prove that negligence played a role and why one should be owed due compensation. In order to prove that a property owner was negligent, the owner should have been aware of the problem and yet failed to take action or correct it.
These are only some examples of possible premises liability cases:
- Slip and falls
- Poor lighting
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Dog bites/attacks
- Injuries due to slipping on ice
- Injuries from failed or fallen equipment
- Toxic or chemical exposure
- Inadequate maintenance of the premises
- Failure to take measures to prevent criminal activity
- Inadequate security or surveillance that leads to an injury or assault
