Premises Liability Attorney

When injuries occur due to dangerous conditions at a person's home or place of business, victims often suffer physically, emotionally, and financially.

Premises liability laws hold property owners accountable when their negligent behavior results in accidents and injuries.

Premises Liability Law in New York

Maintaining Safe Conditions

Owners of both commercial and private property are obligated to maintain a reasonable degree of safety for people who have been implicitly or expressly allowed to enter the area. Should hazardous conditions be present, the proprietors are obligated to make these hazards clearly and effectively known to prevent injury to visitors.

When Is a Property Owner At Fault?

Simply being injured on someone else’s property does not automatically place the owner at fault. However, if there is evidence that the property owner (or employees of the owner) knew about or created the hazardous condition, or failed to adequately warn or protect those entering the property, the property owner may be liable.

I researched medical malpractice law firms in New York City and came across this one. My father was injured and I wanted to make sure we found the best attorneys we could. The staff were all so friendly. The whole process was painfree and my father was able to get a very substantial settlement for his injury.

What to Do If You Have Been Injured: Filing a Premises Liability Claim

Accidents happen, but property owners have a responsibility to do as much as they can to prevent them from occurring. If you or someone you love has been injured on improperly maintained property due to a lack of necessary security measures or because of a preventable environmental hazard, you should file a premises liability claim as soon as possible.

Seek Medical Attention

Immediately following an accident, we urge you to seek medical attention; even if you do not believe you were hurt, you should still get checked by a physician because many injuries do not present symptoms right away. In addition, medical records will serve as important evidence in your case.

Avoid Making Statements about the Incident

We also strongly advise you to refrain from making any statements about the accident to the proprietor or insurance companies until after consulting with a premises liability lawyer at Zucker & Regev, P.C. in Brooklyn. Any statement you give could potentially be used against you.

Contact an Attorney Immediately

Although we will investigate your accident thoroughly to gather all available evidence to support your case, time is of the essence. Contact us as soon as possible. The sooner we are able to protect and preserve evidence, the better we are able to represent you in your suit.

File a Claim

If you have a case, we will file a premises liability claim in court. This will include details such as the defendant's name, the nature of the negligence that occurred, and the type of injuries sustained.

Settlement Negotiation

We will attempt to come to a settlement in the case. This involves meeting with the property owner's representation to determine if they are willing to pay proper compensation without having to go to court. However, if we can't reach an agreement, we are absolutely willing to move forward with litigation.

Presenting Your Case in Court

Our premises liability lawyers in Brooklyn will build a strong case and present convincing evidence to show that you were injured on another person or party's property, and that the property owner's negligence played a role in causing your injuries. If we don't settle the case by the end of the trial, a jury or judge will render the verdict.

Premises Liability Statute of Limitations

In personal injury lawsuits in New York, the statute of limitations is typically three years. This means you have three years from the date of the accident or injury to file your lawsuit against the negligent party. However, there are some important exceptions to this rule:

Discovery

In some cases, individuals don't develop a health condition related to an injury until years later. For example, if you lived in an apartment with toxic mold, but didn't find out that you were suffering health effects until years later, the time in which you have to file begins on the date that you discovered your health issues.

Minors

Since minors lack the maturity of adults, the statute of limitations for minors begins at the age of 18 in premises liability cases. This means that minors have until the age of 21 to file a premises liability claim. Of course, we always recommend that victims meet with a lawyer as soon as possible to have their claim investigated and evidence preserved.
