If injured on someone else’s property, contact a New York Premises Liability Lawyer today to learn about recovering your rightful compensation! Accidents that are categorized by premises liability can occur almost anywhere. Oftentimes, these types of accidents tend to happen at locations that are heavily trafficked by tourists, such as hotels, motels, and amusement and theme parks. Spills in grocery stores, broken steps in office buildings, and other unsafe conditions are other examples. These types of accidents can easily result in slip and falls and other more serious injuries. If the injury is the result of carelessness or negligence, the property owner can be held responsible for failing to actively ensure public safety and prevent accidents from happening. Types of Premises Liability Cases can involve a wide range of hazards. Some of the most common types of accidents and situations that are classified as incidents of premises liability include: slip and fall, falling objects, inadequate or negligent security resulting in assaults, rapes, and robberies, pool drowning, escalator accidents, elevator accidents, construction site accidents where developers fail to adequately protect the public and more. While injuries due to physical harm from unsafe property conditions are frequent and common, premises liability can also include the failure to adequately light buildings and parking lots and an assault and/or mugging takes place as a result.
