Premises Liability: Holding Property Owners Accountable
If you were assaulted in a poorly lit parking lot, you tripped on unevenly constructed stairs or you were bit by someone else’s pit bull, you may have a premises liability claim.
Personal injury law in New York protects the rights of individuals who are injured on another person’s property. This area of law is known as premises liability law. Property owners in New York are required to take adequate measures to ensure their property is safe.
Too Many Property Owners Fail To Maintain A Safe Premises
Many property owners, unfortunately, are unaware of their responsibilities under the law. In fact, some owners may try to deny that they are liable and may tell you that you have no rights after a serious injury. This is not true.

Act Now. Your Time May Be Limited To Take Action.
All personal injury cases have statutes of limitations. This means that there is a limited period of time within which you can file a premises liability claim. In particular, if you have a claim against the government, there are even stricter limits.
Additionally, you need to act quickly to make sure evidence is preserved in your case. Some property owners may try to cover up their negligence to limit their liability. The sooner you start working with an attorney, the better chances you have at bringing a successful claim.
