NYC Premises Liability
According to our NYC Premises Liability Lawyer staff, an accident on another’s property due to a property owner’s negligence is deemed a premises liability incident. This can be caused by dangers in the physical structure of a building or unsafe conditions on a property. Some of the causes of a premises liability incident can be the result of a slip and fall on icy parking lots and walkways, wet and slippery floors or unfit staircases and also an accident stemming from faulty electrical wiring or storage of chemicals on the property. Other premise liability claims can include trip and fall accident or a workplace accident such as a construction accident or scaffold (which can lead to a workers compensation claim).
A premises liability accident can lead to several types of injury:

A premises liability incident can occur in many settings including, but not limited to, malls and shopping centers, hotels, apartments, and hospitals. The law states that, regardless of one’s classification, landlords and property owners are obligated to keep a property reasonably safe. There are three classifications, or ways the law views ways a person entering a property. The first classification is an invitee. This includes someone inviting you into their home and an implied invitation, such as customers of a store or market. Licensee is the second classification and includes a delivery driver or vendor supplying a store with goods. The third classification is a trespasser, who is someone illegally entering a property. The law will treat all three classifications differently, but a person still has a reasonable expectation to be kept safe while on someone else’s property.
Because of the three classifications, the law will decide how liable a property owner is, and this varies from state to state. It can become a complex legal process, but our NYC Premise Liability Lawyer team can help determine the right course of action for you.
