Manhattan Premises Liability Attorney

Helping Victims of Negligence Pursue Fair Compensation

Premises liability claims are claims for personal injuries that happened on a property because of the property owner, tenant, and/or the non-owner resident(s) negligence or deliberate wrongdoing. Property owners and tenants have a duty to keep the environment on and surrounding their property safe for people and guests so that they do not suffer any injuries. In these types of cases, everything from the visitor’s permission to be on the property, and the activities done while on the property, as well as the property owner’s and tenant’s activities, are relevant.

Determining Liability 

One of the most important things a personal injury lawyer must prove in a premises liability personal injury case is who is liable for the person’s injury. The four key considerations are:  

1.Why Was the Person On the Property Injured?

Here, one must think about whether the injured is an invitee – which is someone who was invited to someone’s residential or commercial property, which includes stores, licensee – which is someone who the owner consented to have to enter their property, either as a guest or for the licensee’s own purpose, social guest – which is someone who was a welcome visitor on/in that property, and trespasser – which is someone who entered on/in the property with no consent or invitation. This is the only case in which, irrefutably, the implication that reasonable care was taken to make sure the property is safe does not exist.

How Can a Premises Liability Lawyer Help If the Liable Party Denies Negligence? 

When a property owner or occupier denies liability for an accident, it can be difficult for the injured party to prove their case. This denial can stem from various reasons, such as fear of financial loss, reputational damage, or lack of knowledge about their legal obligations. 

In such situations, the injured party may face several challenges, including:

  • Proving negligence: Establishing that the property owner breached their duty of care by failing to maintain a safe environment or warn of potential hazards can be complex and time-consuming
  • Collecting evidence: Gathering sufficient evidence to support the claim, such as photographs, witness statements, and expert testimony, can be challenging without legal assistance
  • Navigating the legal process: The legal process involved in premises liability cases can be intricate, and navigating through it without proper guidance can lead to costly mistakes and missed opportunities

A premises liability lawyer plays a crucial role in helping clients overcome the challenges posed by non-cooperative liable parties. Their extensive knowledge can assist clients in many ways, including proving negligence, calculating damages, negotiating a settlement, and representing claimants in court.
