What Constitutes a Premises Liability Claim in the Bronx?

Unfortunately, many people in NYC are injured every year due to negligent property owners. Please continue reading and reach out to our Bronx personal injury lawyer to learn more about premises liability claims and how our legal team can help you through every step of the legal process ahead if you’ve been wrongfully injured. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What makes a premises liability claim valid?

If someone is injured on someone else’s property, they will have to satisfy the burden of proof. To do so, you must demonstrate that the other party knew or should have known about the unsafe property conditions, failed to take timely action to fix the unsafe conditions, and that you were injured and incurred significant damages as a result. Our legal team understands the impacts that a serious slip and fall can have on a person, which is why we are here to fight for you.

What should I do to help prove my premises liability claim?

After sustaining an injury on someone else’s property, as long as you are capable of doing so, you should work to document the facts surrounding the accident. This can include doing the following:

  1. Call the police to the scene of the accident. They will document the incident and send emergency services to treat any injuries you have sustained.
  2. Ask anyone who saw your accident for their contact information.
  3. Take pictures of the scene of the accident, including any unsafe conditions that caused you to slip and fall.
  4. Receive a copy of any medical documentation/bills surrounding your injury.
  5. Once you are in stable condition, you should retain the services of an experienced Bronx personal injury lawyer who can work to uncover all other evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim.

How long will I have to file a premises liability claim in New York State?

When someone is wrongfully injured, they will have to file their premises liability claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is, generally, three years, which means that in most cases, you will only have three years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party. We can help you today.
