Can property owners be held responsible for my injury?
A “premises liability” case is often called a “slip and fall” case, because in many cases, the injury happens when someone slips and falls down. However, any time someone is injured on another’s property, the owner of the property may be liable for damages.
New York law requires property owners to ensure that their buildings and the surrounding areas are safe. All property in New York City is required to be properly maintained.
Apartment buildings, supermarkets, retail stores, office complexes, schools, restaurants, hospitals and private homes are all subject to these requirements.
Things such as broken or uneven steps, dark hallways, slippery floors or untrimmed trees are not just unpleasant or inconvenient: they pose serious risks to anyone visiting the property. If you or someone you love has been injured on a poorly maintained property, you have the right to seek damages from the owners of the property in a premises liability lawsuit.
How will I know if a property has been negligently maintained?
If you’ve slipped and fallen or otherwise suffered a serious injury on a New York property, chances are likely that the property owner has failed to maintain the property thoroughly and regularly.
Indications of improper or negligent maintenance by a property owner include things such as:
- Insufficient lighting in public areas;
- Loose or broken steps
- Hazardous or heavy tree branches
- Uneven, mismatched or wet flooring;
- Mis-leveled or poorly maintained elevators
- Inadequate locks or security measures to protect from known criminal activity
- Cluttered walkways
- Electrical hazards
- Dangerous and insufficiently controlled animals.
