What You Need to Know About Premises Liability Claims in Manhattan

When someone is injured on another person’s property due to no fault of their own, they may qualify for compensation in a premises liability claim. Please continue reading to learn more about premises liability claims and how our experienced Manhattan personal injury lawyer can help you through every step of the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of slip and fall accidents?

Slip and fall accidents occur for a wide array of reasons, though they are typically due to property owner negligence. For example, wet floors without signs warning individuals of the safety hazard frequently cause slip and fall accidents. Additionally, poorly placed floor mats in stores cause slip and fall accidents. In general, any time a property owner does not ensure that his or her property is safe for all those who enter and exit, a serious slip and fall accident can occur.

How do I know if I have a valid premises liability claim?

If you are looking to file a premises liability lawsuit, you will have to hire an attorney with extensive experience proving premises liability claims. As long as your attorney can prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the unsafe conditions present, failed to take action to fix them, and that you were injured and incurred significant damages as a result, you should qualify for compensation.

What should I do if I am injured due to another party’s negligence?

If you are injured due to another party’s negligence, you should take the following steps to maximize your chances of winning your claim:

  1. Call the police and notify the property owner of your accident.
  2. Ask witnesses for their contact information.
  3. Take pictures of the safety hazard that caused your injury.
  4. Seek immediate medical attention.
  5. Retain the services of a Manhattan slip and fall attorney.

How long do I have to file a premises liability claim in Manhattan?

The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Manhattan is, generally, three years, which means that in most cases, you will have three years from the date of your accident to sue the property owner responsible for your injuries. If you want any longer than three years, you will most likely be barred from suing.
