levi internal header images building premises When you are injured at a public business, sporting event, or on someone else’s property you may have a case for premise liability. If an injury takes place, the assumption is that the property owner is responsible. If you’re not sure how to get those benefits or you’re having trouble with your claim, call the NYC Premises Liability attorney.

By law, a property owner must make sure that their property is a safe environment for any and all guests who visit them.

What is Premise Liability?

Millions of people everyday visit other businesses as part of their daily routine, as such, accidents are bound to happen. The liability occurs when businesses fail to provide a safe environment, whether through neglect or routine maintenance. Our responsibility is to determine accountability and provide compensation for something that could have been prevented.

Public places throughout New York such as stores, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and government buildings are examples of public spaces that you naturally assume are well maintained and safe. Many are very well maintained, but as accidents are unpredictable, so are some accidental conditions.

The New York premise liability lawyers at Daniella Levi & Associates, PC understand the long-lasting effects of injuries and the impact they can have on their families. Our legal team is here to help you get the benefits to which you are legally entitled.

Who is Covered?

Visitors, guests, and yes, even trespassers can be covered in a premise liability event. Visitors and guests who are given permission to use the property, such as anyone coming in during open public hours of operation are considered covered. Trespassers, while in violation of public access, have a reasonable expectation that the property is safe and free from harm. This is a more limited right as they are not invited onto the property, so a deeper evaluation of the situation is warranted.

Types of Exposure

Businesses can face multiple types of exposure when dealing with a premise liability case. Here are some common examples:

  • Poor security – Preventing security risks, and limiting areas that are known to be unsafe.
  • Inadequate routine maintenance – Buildings always need upkeep and failure to do so can result in multiple occasions for accidents to occur.
  • Slips and falls – Many falls can be prevented with careful attention to flooring and weather.
  • Elevator and escalators – Another example of preventative measures through proper signage and careful maintenance.
Leased Property and Shared Premises?

In the case of a leased property that is owned by a different person or company, many times the liability is transferred but a review of the business liability and premise liability insurance policy is warranted. It cannot be assumed who is responsible and this is why diligent investigative procedures are important.

How Much Can You Claim in Compensation?

Determining benefits is dependent on various factors, there isn’t a specific amount that we can offer as to what compensation you may or may not be entitled to.
