What is Premises Liability?
In US and New York State Law, premises liability refers to the legal accountability of a landowner or occupier for injuries occurring on their property. According to rulings made by the appellate court of New York, even owners of public spaces such as stores or office buildings have a responsibility to ensure that their property is safe and free of hazards. If you or a loved one are injured or have your personal property damaged due to negligence or improper property maintenance, the owner of the property your accident occurred on can be sued for damages and compensation.
Common Hazards and Areas of Negligence Include:
- Wet floors
- Damaged or uneven stairs, walkways, or ramps
- Defective handrails
- Poor lighting or other visual obstructions
- Floor obstructions
- Faulty electrical wiring
- Manufacturing elevators or escalators
- Building code violations
