What Makes a Viable Premises Liability Claim in New York City?

There are few things worse than getting hurt due to the negligence of another. Unfortunately, people are wrongfully harmed as a result of property owners failing to ensure their premises are reasonably safe for all who use them. If you were recently injured on someone else’s property due to no fault of your own, you’re most likely wondering whether you can receive compensation via a premises liability claim to help you deal with the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and other damages you’ve incurred as a result of your accident. Please continue reading and reach out to a dedicated Manhattan premises liability lawyer to learn more about these claims and how we can help you through the process ahead. Here are some of the questions you  may have:

What constitutes a valid premises liability claim in New York City?

To have a valid premises liability claim, you are required to prove several things. First, you must prove that there was a dangerous property condition present. You must then prove that the property owner had a duty of care to remedy the unsafe property issue timely. You must then prove that the property owner breached his or her duty of care and that you encountered the dangerous property condition. Finally, you must prove that the property condition was the direct cause of your accident and injury. This isn’t always easy to do, which is why you’d be best served with a seasoned personal injury lawyer in your corner who can help you fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.

Where are people most often injured?

People are injured in a wide range of circumstances and on various types of property. Some of the most common types of accidents we see involving premises liability are as follows:

  • Elevator or escalator malfunctions
  • Sidewalk accidents
  • Parking lot accidents
  • Department or retail store accidents
  • Restaurant accidents
  • Supermarket accidents

What can I do if I’m hurt?

If you’re hurt due to no fault of your own, it’s paramount that you document the cause of your injury, such as by taking pictures of the safety hazard and calling the police to the scene of the accident. Once you’ve documented the incident and received medical treatment, you should hire a personal injury attorney who can help you satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim.
