Premises Liability Law in Long Island, New York

Premises liability is the legal concept concerning the accountability of property owners for the injuries of visitors due to an unsafe or dangerous hazard on the premises. This liability applies to commercial properties, such as retail stores, hotels, and other public buildings, government offices, and even private residences. These premises can prove to be hazardous or even dangerous due to negligence like deferred or poor maintenance, inadequate security, or other faulty conditions. Something as simple as spilled food or liquid on the floor which the premises owner or manager neglects to handle can result in a slip and fall accident injuring a patron or customer.

Elevator accidents, dog bites, drowning, criminal attacks, and falls are all examples of types of premises liability. In each case, it must be established that an unsafe condition led to your injuries. You must be legally on the premises, as an invited guest, customer, patron, resident, or service person and it must be shown that the owner or manager of the property was guilty of negligence in failing to repair a known hazard.

Every case of premises liability is unique, with its own set of particular circumstances and facts. These should be reviewed by a competent attorney for the injured person to determine what damages may be sought through legal action.
