Premises Liability

If you are injured on someone else’s property, you might have a right to seek compensation for your injuries. You may have a premises liability claim against individuals, corporations, and government entities, depending on where your injuries occurred. At the Law Firm of Emdin & Russell, LLP, we can zealously prosecute your premises liability claim and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

What is Premises Liability?

Property owners have a legal duty to ensure their property is safe. Business owners must protect customers and others from injuries and private property owners can be held legally responsible if someone is injured while in their homes.

In 2004, New York property owners became liable for injuries that occur on sidewalks in front of their premises. This means that it is the homeowner and/or business’ responsibility to maintain and service sidewalks and keep them in good repair.

Examples of other premises liability cases include:

  • Injuries that occur because of accidents in commercial or residential buildings
  • Injuries that occur inside of an elevator
  • Assaults that occur in a building with inadequate security
  • Injuries that are caused because property was not properly maintained
  • Injuries that occur due to slip-and-fall accidents

To ensure you receive the compensation you deserve, it is imperative you work with an experienced personal injury attorney who understands New York premises liability laws.
