Premises Liability

Slip and Fall Lawyers in New York City

Property owners have a responsibility to see that the physical safety of their visitors is protected. When a visitor to their premises is injured due to a safety hazard, the victim may be entitled to file a claim against the property owner citing premises liability. Whether the incident involved a slip-and-fall accident, burn injury, or back injury, the injured victim is advised to contact an attorney to help recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering associated with the accident.

Those in need of experienced premises liability and slip-and-fall attorneys in Manhattan, New York, or anywhere else in the United States can turn to the personal injury lawyers of Proner & Proner. Contact Proner & Proner today to schedule your free case review.

Property Owners and Their Liability

Restaurant owners, store owners, homeowners, and other property owners are legally obligated to ensure that their premises are not inherently dangerous. Unsafe conditions such as broken steps, slippery floors, or faulty construction can result in serious injury if proper precautions are not taken, leaving property owners vulnerable to a premises liability lawsuit filed by the injured victim. When injury does occur as the result of an unsafe condition, our slip and fall attorneys in New York can help.

For example, under premises liability law, a shop owner must clearly mark wet floors, broken steps (which should be repaired immediately), and other potential safety hazards. A homeowner must protect visitors from anything on the property that could result in bodily harm. It is usually only in cases of trespassing that property owners are not responsible for injuries sustained on their property. Learn more about what to do after an injury on someone else’s property.
