What You Need to Know About Premises Liability Claims in New York City

If you’ve been injured on another person’s property as a result of their negligence, you are most likely looking into filing a premises liability claim. Please continue reading and speak with our New York City personal injury lawyer to learn more about these claims and how we can work to obtain the compensation you require to heal. Here are some of the questions you may have:

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

To have a valid premises liability claim, you and your attorney will have to prove several things. You must first prove that the property owner in question either knew or should have reasonably known about the unsafe property conditions. You will then have to prove that the property owner failed to fix the unsafe property conditions in a timely fashion. You must then demonstrate that the failure to fix the unsafe conditions directly caused your accident, thereby resulting in you sustaining significant financial damages as a result. This is not always easy, but our New York City personal injury lawyer is here to help.

What should I do after an accident?

If you are injured in an accident, as long as you are physically capable, it is imperative that you take several steps to maximize your chances of winning your premises liability claim. They are as follows:

  1. Call the police and notify the property owner of your accident.
  2. Ask anyone who saw your accident for their name, phone number, and email address.
  3. Take pictures of the unsafe property conditions that caused you to sustain an injury.
  4. Ensure you receive medical treatment immediately.
  5. Hire a New York City personal injury lawyer who can file a personal injury claim on your behalf.

What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in New York City?

The statute of limitations is the timeframe in which all those who’ve been wrongly injured will have to take legal action against the liable party. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is three years, you mustn’t wait any longer than three years from the date of your injury to sue the property owner responsible for your accident. If you do, there is a very good chance that you will permanently lose your right to sue. If you have any further questions or you are ready to begin the claims process, please do not hesitate to speak with our knowledgeable New York City personal injury lawyer today.
