Premises Liability: What Is It?
Premises liability is a large practice area that can cover many different types of accidents. In short, these accidents happen to someone when they are visiting the property of a person or business. Some sort of defect that the property owner is or should be aware of causes the visitor to suffer some type of accident which results in an injury.
These cases can be incredibly tough to prove. The trial lawyers at Jacobson Law have over two decades of combined experience helping those injured in premises liability accidents at places throughout Long Island. We understand how to make sure those in Nassau County and Suffolk County get the best possible result from the parties responsible for their injuries.
Owners Have A Responsibility To Maintain A Safe Environment
Both individuals and business owners in New York are required to maintain safe conditions for those who are on their property. When they don’t, they can be held liable for your injuries. This can include payment for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering. As your representation, we will do everything we can to advocate on your behalf. This is a broad practice area that can cover a variety of cases. Common examples of premises liability include:
- Slip-and-fall cases
- Defective stairways
- Dog bites
- Bad railings
- Negligent security systems
- Poor lighting
It is important to have a knowledgeable attorney at your side. Property or business owners often will claim that they had no idea that conditions were unsafe. Or, they might try to say that you were the ones who caused the condition that led to your injuries.
