How and Why Dangerous Conditions Lead to Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability incidents can happen anywhere — from commercial properties like shopping malls, restaurants, and hotels to private residences and public spaces such as parks and sidewalks. The location of the accident often plays a role in determining who is at fault.

Hazardous conditions often cause injuries in: 

  • Grocery stores
  • Parking lots
  • Apartment buildings
  • Construction sites
  • Hotels and motels
  • Swimming pools
  • Playgrounds
  • Schools and universities
  • Public transportation stations
  • Shopping malls and retail stores.

How Do I Know If I Have a Premises Liability Case?

Typically, if you were lawfully on the property—as an invitee, licensee, or sometimes even as a trespasser—and suffered injuries due to the property owner’s negligence, you might be entitled to file a claim.

To successfully prove a premises liability case, your lawyer must prove that the property owner had a duty of care towards the injured party, a responsibility that varies based on the individual’s status on the premises (e.g., a shopper versus a trespasser). Secondly, there needs to be evidence that the property owner breached this duty, either through negligence in maintaining the property or failing to provide warnings about potential dangers. This breach should then be directly linked to the injury the individual suffered, establishing causation. Finally, you must demonstrate that tangible harm, whether physical, emotional, or financial, resulted from the incident. 

While many premises liability claims involve slips, trips, and falls, there are many other situations where a property owner’s negligence can result in harm. Each comes with its unique challenges and requirements, making the help of a skilled attorney familiar with New York laws and the specifics of each case type invaluable in seeking maximum compensation and securing your future after such an accident disrupts your life. 

Some of the most common premises liability claims we see involve:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Inadequate property maintenance
  • Elevator or escalator accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Dog bites or animal attacks
  • Inadequate building security leading to injury or assault
  • Toxic fumes or chemical exposure

Negligent Property Owners Can Cause Serious Injuries

Premises liability incidents can result in a broad range of injuries, varying in severity from minor bruises to life-altering conditions. 

Some of the most commonly sustained injuries include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Head injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries, which may lead to paralysis
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Burns from fires or electrical sources
  • Injuries from falling objects
  • Drowning or near-drowning incidents in pool areas
  • Toxic exposure due to chemicals or hazardous substances

How Much Is My Premises Liability Claim Worth?

In premises liability cases in New York, accident victims are entitled to pursue compensation to address the physical, emotional, and financial repercussions of their injuries. While it’s impossible to determine how much you will receive in a settlement or verdict, the value of your claim is generally based on the severity of your injuries and your overall losses. 

Compensation can cover a broad spectrum of damages, from immediate medical expenses to long-term rehabilitative costs, lost wages due to missed work, and potential future earnings if your capacity to work has been permanently affected. 

You are also entitled to claim non-economic damages that capture the pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life that often accompanies such incidents.

 Each case’s nuances and specific circumstances will determine the exact amount of compensation, but by working with a dedicated lawyer, you can make sure you receive the maximum amount you’re entitled to under the law.
