Premises Liability

Personal Injury Involving Premises Liability

Brooklyn Premises Liability Lawyers

Property owners are obligated by law to keep their public areas safe. Failure to maintain these areas can result in serious injuries including concussions, broken bones and other injuries both big and small.

If you have suffered a serious injury from a slip-and-fall because of dangerous conditions on property owned by someone else, you have the right to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Premises liability law in New York is complex, however, and you will need experienced legal counsel to effectively pursue your claim or lawsuit.

Slip-and-fall accidents can be caused by many different things including snow, a slippery surface due a spilled liquid, inadequate lighting or other reason. If you have suffered an injury on someone else’s property for these or any other reason then please contact us as soon as possible.

Is Your Case Worth Pursuing?

Whether your case against a landlord or other property owner is worth pursuing will depend on many factors. We take every client inquiry seriously, carefully considering the severity of injuries, whether it is possible to prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition, and whether there is insurance coverage or another viable source of financial recovery.
