What Should I Do if I am Hurt on My Friend’s Property?

There are few worse places to sustain an injury than at a friend or relative’s house. Unfortunately, this happens more often than you may think, and if you’ve recently been hurt on your friend’s property due to no fault of your own, you should continue reading and consider speaking with our knowledgeable Brooklyn personal injury lawyer today. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What should I do if I’m injured on my friend’s property?

If you are injured on your friend’s property, you should do everything you can to document the incident. This means taking pictures of the unsafe property condition that caused your accident, asking any witnesses for their contact information, and seeking immediate medical treatment for your injury. If you are seriously injured, you may wish to call the police to the scene of the accident, as they can send an ambulance that will transport you to a hospital. Ensure you keep a copy of all medical documentation/bills associated with your injury.

Will I have to sue my friend if I’m injured on his property?

Oftentimes, when someone is injured on another person’s property, they won’t want to sue that person, however, it does not change the fact that they’ve been seriously injured and require financial compensation to heal. Fortunately, the truth is that if you sue someone for an injury sustained on their property due to no fault of your own, you are simply suing their insurance company, and not the person directly.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in New York State?

After an injury, it is critical that you file your claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is, typically, three years, which means that in most cases, you will only have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the liable party. Our legal team is prepared to guide you through every step of the legal process ahead–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
