Long Island Premises Liability Lawyers Fight for Injured Victims.
Premises liability accidents that happen on someone else’s property often cause serious and debilitating injuries. In New York, like most other states, property owners must maintain the condition of their property. It must be reasonably safe and free from hazards. When they fail to fulfill their duties of safety, and someone gets injured, they might be legally responsible for paying damages to the victims.
What is Premises Liability Under New York Law?
The term for the claims that encompass accidents and injuries that occur on someone else’s property is called “premises liability.” Premises liability cases cover a wide variety of circumstances and locations where people get hurt. Whether the victim in a premises liability case is a guest in someone’s home, patron of a business, or visitor to an office, the laws provide ways to collect compensation for injuries when they result from negligence.
If you or a loved one is the victim of an accident on someone else’s property, you might be entitled to substantial financial compensation.

When Property Owners are Negligent, and Injuries Occur, Victims Might Collect Compensation
New York property owners owe duties and responsibilities to the people who enter their premises. Homeowners, landlords, tenants, business owners, and municipalities have to keep property under their control “reasonably safe.” When they fail to do so, negligence can occur.
When accidents and injuries result from negligence, the victim might have a valid premises liability claim.
Property owners should ensure:
- Known hazards are fixed in a timely manner
- People receive warnings about dangers that exist on the premises
- There is reasonable security
- They take reasonable steps to learn about potential hazards and dangers
Premises liability claims allow people on the premises to hold property owners, landlords, tenants, and others legally responsible for negligently causing accidents and injuries occurring on the property.
