What to Do If You’ve Been Injured on Someone Else’s Property

In order to protect your legal rights and to lay a strong foundation to build your case, we must first collect all of the relevant evidence and be sure that you obtain medical care.

Remember, premises liability cases are different from most other personal injury cases in New York. Most significantly, the evidence in these types of cases can disappear. In order to protect your legal rights and obtain adequate compensation, it is important that you act quickly.

If you have suffered an injury:

  1. Obtain the names and telephone numbers of all witnesses, as well as the property manager and employees;
  2. Document the accident with either an incident report from the property owner or call the police to make a police report;
  3. If feasible, take pictures of the area or condition which caused your injury;
  4. Do not discuss your accident with any insurance company representative; and
  5. Contact the Manhattan, New York premises liability attorneys of Proner & Proner to protect your legal rights and discuss what we can do for you.
