Premises Liability

Failure To Maintain Property

In New York, property owners have a responsibility to maintain their premises safe, free and clear from conditions that could compromise the safety of visitors. This applies to commercial property owners as well as residential property owners in some situations. If the property owner was either aware or should have been aware of a defective condition or hazard that ends up causing injury, he or she may be held liable for the injuries someone sustains.

Premises liability accidents can occur on a sidewalk, in a parking garage, from a malfunctioning elevator, a slip and fall on an icy or slippery surface, a collapsing ceiling or defective building structure. Any of these can cause someone to sustain serious permanent bodily injuries.

Elements of a Successful Premises Liability Claim                    

In New York, property owners are responsible for ensuring the safety of their guests whether they own a restaurant, apartment complex, shopping mall, or private residence. If a property owner fails to conduct routine maintenance or remove potential hazards and someone who visits the property is injured as a result, they can be held accountable and civilly liable. This area of the law is what is called premises liability. However, a successful claim requires the victim to be able to establish the following:

  • They were lawfully on the property and were not trespassing
  • The owner knew or should have known about a hazard existing on the property
  • The owner failed to remove the hazard or warn visitors about the risks of harm
  • The property owner’s negligence was the direct cause of their injuries
