What is Premises Liability?

Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably safe and take steps to protect visitors from injuries that are easily avoidable. This includes the owners of both private and commercial properties. Failing to meet this responsibility is negligence, and our attorneys hold them accountable.

Examples of premises liability cases include:

  • Slip-and fall accidents
  • Parking lot accidents
  • Unsafe stairs
  • Assaults due to poor security
  • Dog bites
  • Park and playground accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Getting injured while visiting a construction site

The injuries from these types of accidents vary, but can be quite serious. They can include catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury. It's important to get a lawyer who will fight for your rights.

Proving Negligence in a Premises Liability Claim

It can be difficult to prove negligence in premises liability cases. Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC has the knowledge, experience and resources to win difficult, complex cases and will fight to help you recover the compensation you need and deserve for your injuries.

We begin by conducting our own investigation into what happened. Our personal injury lawyers review all documentation related to your case. We identify and interview witnesses. We know where to look for evidence that a property owner's negligence led to your injury.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Premises Liability Claim?

In a premises liability claim, individuals have the opportunity to pursue compensation for a range of damages resulting from their injuries. These damages encompass:

  • Medical Expenses: Coverage for both current and future medical bills related to the injury sustained on the premises.
  • Lost Wages: Providing compensation for income lost due to the inability to work during the recovery process.
  • Pain and Suffering: Seeking damages for the physical pain, emotional distress, and overall reduction in quality of life resulting from the injury.
  • Property Damage: Reimbursement for any personal property damaged in the incident.
  • Disability or Disfigurement: Compensation for permanent injuries or scarring resulting from the accident.
  • Loss of Consortium: Damages awarded to family members for the loss of companionship or support due to the victim's injury.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Premises Liability Claim in New York?

In New York, the statute of limitations for premises liability claims is generally three years from the date of the injury. It is crucial to act promptly and consult with an experienced attorney to ensure that your legal rights are preserved. Failing to file a claim within the statute of limitations may result in the forfeiture of your right to seek compensation for your injuries.

How Our Premises Liability Attorneys Can Help

Insurance companies typically will do what they can to deny your claim or minimize their payment. That's why we take the time to build a strong case that they have to take seriously. Many times, we are able to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company that meets your needs. But if needed, we will fight for you in court. Our firm is proud of our case results. Each one represents a client we've been able to help.
