How to Sue a Homeowner for a Halloween-Related Injury

Halloween is usually one of the most fun nights of the year, for parents and children alike. However, if you or your child sustain an injury this Halloween, you will most likely seek financial compensation. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What should homeowners do to keep trick-or-treaters and their parents safe this Halloween?

Homeowners can take several reasonable precautions to prevent injuries from occurring. The most important thing a homeowner can do is keep his or her driveway sufficiently lighted so all trick-or-treaters can make their way around with ease, seeing any potential uneven surfaces or other safety hazards. However, homeowners are also responsible for keeping their pathway clear of debris or other objects that may cause a trip and fall accident. Additionally, it is generally a better idea to use tealight in jack-o-lanterns, as opposed to real candles, as you may prevent a fire by doing so.

Can I sue a homeowner if I was injured on his or her property?

Fortunately, as long as you can prove that you were injured due to a homeowner’s negligence, there is a very good chance you will recover the compensation you need. However, this is sometimes easier said than done, so it is generally best to hire an attorney who knows the ins and outs of the personal injury process.

Do I need an attorney to win a personal injury claim?

An attorney can significantly bolster your chances of winning a personal injury claim. When you are injured, insurance companies do not willingly dole out money to all those who file a claim. That is why you need an experienced attorney who knows how to obtain and present evidence to prove a personal injury claim. Your attorney may use pictures or photos of the accident, police reports, medical documents, eyewitness testimony, pictures of the safety hazard that caused your accident, and more to prove your claim.

What is the statute of limitations in New York for personal injury claims?

The statute of limitations in New York State is three years. This means you will have three years from the date of your Halloween accident to file a lawsuit against a negligent homeowner. Those who wait past the three-year mark are denied the right to sue, so the sooner you act, the better. Our firm is just a call (or click) away. We are here to help. Reach out today so we can get the claims process started, and get you on your road to recovery.
