New York Premises Liability Lawyer

New York City Premises Liability Attorney

Assisting victims of property owner negligence

When you visit someone else’s home, shop in a retail store, or eat in a restaurant, you expect that the property will be reasonably well maintained and free of any hazards that could cause you harm. In fact, New York law requires property owners to make sure that their premises are reasonably safe for visitors. But not all property owners uphold this duty of care, and innocent people can be seriously hurt as a result.

If you were injured on someone else’s property due to unsafe property conditions, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries and damages. At Keith D. Silverstein & Associates, we represent individuals who have suffered serious injuries due to property owner negligence throughout NYC’s five boroughs. If you believe you may have a premises liability case, reach out to our firm today to learn more about your legal rights and options during a free consultation.

When Is a Property Owner Liable for Injuries?

Generally speaking, property owners can be held liable for accidents and injuries that occurred on their properties when the injured party was lawfully on the property and when the property owner was negligent in some way.

To prove your premises liability case, you will need to prove each of the following elements:

Under New York law, property owners owe varying duties of care to different types of visitors. Those who visit a property for the mutual benefit of the visitor and the property owner, such as customers, are known as invitees and are owed the highest duty of care. Those who visit a property for their own purposes but not for the benefit of the property owner, or licensees, are owed a secondary duty of care, while trespassers are owed minimal duties of care.

Examples of Dangerous Property Conditions

A dangerous property condition is any condition or hazard that poses a risk of foreseeable injury, meaning the average person would know that the condition could cause an accident or injury.

Some examples of dangerous property conditions and hazards include:

These and other dangerous conditions are often the results of improper property maintenance or general negligence. When this is the case, injured victims have the right to take legal action against liable property owners.
