Premises liability laws exist to ensure that property owners take appropriate care of their properties and prevent injuries to visitors, guests, and customers. Slip and fall accidents are fairly common in Rego Park and throughout New York. Sometimes the injuries are minor, a few bruises perhaps. But other times the injuries from a slip and fall can be serious. These injuries can cause serious consequences for the person who fell, physically, mentally, and financially. While it may take some time to fully recover from your injuries or adjust to a disability, compensation shouldn’t have to be something that you’re stressed out about.
Property owners must warn invitees and licensees of known safety issues on the property if those guests are likely to encounter them while on the property. As a general rule, a property owner has a duty (known as a duty of care) to keep his or her property in good repair, and to warn or protect against unsafe conditions. If the property owner fails to uphold this duty, and the failure results in causing harm to another person, he or she may be liable in a personal injury claim for any damages. Some of the most common reasons for slip and fall accidents may be broken or defective stairs or stair rails, poorly lit stairwells, rugs or mats that get bunched up or worn out, uneven patches of ground, negligent snow and ice removal, oil or wet spots from leaked materials, or a freshly mopped floor. It is important to keep in mind, however, that just because you sustain an injury on someone’s property, the owner is not always liable.
If you are injured on someone else’s property, you may have a valid premises liability case against the owners if negligent parties didn’t act with proper care.These cases can be complex, so it is important to speak with an experienced accident attorney.
