Halloween Safety Tips for Property Owners/Renters in Brooklyn

If you have a child, he or she is most likely extremely excited for Halloween this year. That being said, as a property owner or renter, it is your responsibility to ensure that your property is safe for trick-or-treaters. Please continue reading for some helpful Halloween safety tips, and contact our knowledgeable Brooklyn personal injury attorneys if you or your child are wrongly injured this Halloween. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding Halloween safety and how we can help if you are injured in an accident:

How can I ensure the safety of trick-or-treaters this year?

If you own or rent a property, you owe it to trick-or-treaters to ensure that your property is safe. For this very reason, you should take the following steps:

  • Ensure the stairway leading up to your porch is sturdy, as well as the railing.
  • Ensure that there are no missing or cracked steps.
  • If you have a pet, keep it locked away, especially if your pet is aggressive.
  • Do not hand out spoiled or expired treats.
  • Ensure that Halloween decorations are not placed somewhere that they pose a tripping hazard.
  • If you have a jack-o-lantern with a real candle inside, ensure it is someplace where it won’t start a fire if accidentally knocked over by trick-or-treaters.

What should I do if my child is injured on someone else’s property this year?

If your child is injured on someone else’s property this Halloween, you should take pictures of the conditions that caused the accident, ask all witnesses for their contact information, notify the property owner of the accident, ensure your child receives immediate medical treatment, and retain the services of an experienced Brooklyn personal injury attorney.

How long will I have to file a premises liability claim in Brooklyn?

If you or your child is injured on someone else’s property, you must not wait to take legal action against the landlord or property owner responsible. The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in New York City is, generally, three years, which means that you will have three years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party. The sooner you bring your claim to our firm’s attention, the better. We are always here to help the wrongly injured.
