What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is a legal concept that holds property owners responsible for accidents and injuries that occur on their property due to negligence or unsafe conditions. Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition to prevent harm to visitors and guests. When they fail in this duty, and injuries occur as a result, the injured party may have the right to seek compensation for their damages.
Our Manhattan premises liability lawyers handle a wide range of cases, including but not limited to:
- Slip and Fall Accidents: These often occur due to wet floors, uneven surfaces, or inadequate lighting.
- Trip and Fall Accidents: Loose or damaged flooring, uneven sidewalks, and obstacles in walkways can lead to these accidents.
- Negligent Security: Inadequate security measures on a property can result in assaults, robberies, and other crimes.
- Elevator and Escalator Accidents: Mechanical failures and poor maintenance can lead to serious injuries.
- Unsafe Building Conditions: Poorly maintained buildings can pose numerous hazards, including falling debris and collapsing structures.
- Dog Bites: Property owners may be liable for injuries caused by their dogs if they were aware of their pet's dangerous tendencies.
To succeed in a premises liability case, you must establish the following elements:
- Duty of Care: You must demonstrate that the property owner owed you a duty of care to keep the premises safe.
- Breach of Duty: You must show that the property owner breached their duty by failing to maintain safe conditions or failing to warn of known hazards.
- Causation: You must establish a direct link between the property owner's negligence and your injuries.
- Damages: You must provide evidence of the damages you suffered as a result of the accident, including medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering.
Our Manhattan premises liability lawyers have the legal knowledge and expertise to help you build a strong case by gathering evidence, consulting experts, and negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf.
