New York Premise Liability Lawyer

As New York City Premises Liability Attorneys, we have successfully represented clients injured in department stores, restaurants, grocery stores, banks, hospitals and other buildings open to the public

Property and business owners have a responsibility and an obligation to take precautions that will ensure the safety of their customers or guests. If the business or property owner or possessor of the property knows of a potentially dangerous condition, he or she must take steps to warn guests and clearly mark the area to prevent harm or injury to the patrons or guests. If he or she does not and the result is serious injury such as brain injury, spinal cord injury or fractures, the property owner can be held liable. For example, slippery floors within a business must be properly marked and unstable steps or potholes should be marked and repaired as soon as possible. Common situations giving rise to premises accidents include uneven floor surfaces, poorly marked changes in elevation, slippery surfaces, broken sidewalks, uneven elevators and broken steps. They can also involve young children injured in swimming pools, slip and falls due to unmarked liquid spills, falls from unsafe equipment or buildings, and any other injury sustained on a property due to the property or business owner's negligence. Often these injuries result in serious traumatic injuries like spinal cord injury, brain injury or fractures. The experienced and capable attorneys at our firm can help you or your loved one receive compensation if you or your loved one have been injured due to the negligent or wrongful acts of a property owner or possessor of a property.

If the City of New York is the landowner or responsible party, then a Notice of Claim must be filed with the New York City Comptroller's office within 90 days.
