Property owners in New York City have an obligation to keep their premises hazard free and to address any known dangers in a timely manner. This duty applies to homeowners, businesses, landlords and the government. When dangerous conditions exist and an invited party is injured, the property owner can be held responsible under premises liability laws.
If you were injured in a property accident in NYC, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You may be entitled to financial compensation, and a qualified lawyer can help you understand your rights and options.

Proving Liability In A Property Accident Case
Establishing fault when you are injured in a slip/trip-and-fall accident can be a challenge. You must prove that the property owner knew about the hazard (or should have known) and did not address it in a timely and reasonable manner. Our lawyers are highly skilled in investigation and evidence collection. We interview witnesses and store employees, seek out video footage and maintenance logs, and look for past history of negligence. Using our in-depth knowledge of complex injury laws, we establish cases that win compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages and any permanent disability.

Working with our law firm brings immediate credibility to your case. We are known for our aggressive approach to protecting clients’ rights and for our willingness to advance to trial when needed.
