Premises Liability Lawyers in White Plains

What Is Premises Liability?

Property owners have a duty to maintain their property in a way that keeps others safe. If someone got injured because a property owner failed to keep his or her property safe, the injured party may be eligible to bring a premises liability lawsuit.

Premises liability lawsuits in New York all encompass the same main legal concept even if the surrounding facts are different. That legal concept is negligence. Negligence means that someone had a legal duty to do something or to not do something and that they breached their legal duty. When they ignored their legal duty, someone was hurt. The injury suffered by the victim may be physical, but it can also be property damage or even emotional damage.

Negligence and premises liability both fall into an area of law in New York known as personal injury law. Personal injury law is part of New York civil law. Most civil lawsuits are filed between private citizens. This can be two people, a person and a business, or even a person and a government agency.

Types of Premises Liability Lawsuits

 The most common types of premises liability lawsuits include:

  • Slip and fall accidents, including those caused by snow or ice
  • Defective conditions of the premises, including broken city-maintained sidewalks
  • Inadequate premises security that results in your assault or other physical injury
  • Dog bites, including dogs who are roaming the street
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Amusement and swim park accidents
  • Injuries caused by fire
  • Flooding or other water leaks
  • Toxic fumes or chemicals

Property Owners Have a Legal Duty to Others

Property owners have a legal duty to others. They must exercise what is known as reasonable care to take care of their property and keep it safe. How the court may treat your premises liability lawsuit may depend at least partially on whether you were invited to the premises, if you had implied permission to be there (such as a customer shopping in a store), or if you were trespassing. Another important element is whether the property owner knew of the danger and whether they had ample time to correct it.
