What Duty Do Property Owners Owe Visitors & Employees?
Under New York State law, property owners owe a duty of care to search
their property for potential hazards and must make a reasonable effort
to fix the issue or ensure its presence is well known to visitors to protect
them from injury. While it is impossible to prevent every accident, property
owners are expected to act prudently and take reasonable precautions.
This can include performing routine safety inspections and completing
maintenance as needed. Failure to seek out hazards or knowingly putting
off repairs can cause visitors and workers to be injured and will give
them the right to pursue recompense.
Our attorneys are equipped to handle all kinds of premises liability cases,
In order to prevail in a premises liability case, you must be able to show that:
- You were lawfully on the property, or the owner knew you were trespassing
on the property
- The property owner was negligent in dealing with the unsafe condition
- The negligence caused you injury
Premises liability claims may stem from incidents occurring nearly anywhere,
including grocery stores, apartment complexes, shopping malls, commercial
facilities, private homes, and nightclubs.
