Financial Compensation in a Manhattan Premises Liability Case

According to New York City Bar, you may be entitled to compensation for losses like medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering if you were injured on someone else’s property due to unsafe conditions. You must show that:

  • You were on the property lawfully and the property owner or relevant party had a duty of care to keep the premises safe. This expectation of reasonable care applies to private property like homes and apartments as well as public spaces like office buildings, public parks, and public pools.
  • The careless property owner or other relevant party failed in their legal duty to guard against, eliminate, or warn you of a dangerous condition.
  • You were injured because of their carelessness.
  • Your injuries caused damages. They could be physical injuries, non-physical resulting in pain and suffering, monetary like lost income, or a combination of all three.

This highlights one of many reasons it is highly advisable to enlist the help of our Manhattan personal injury law firm when seeking compensation. They can review the circumstances of your accident for free and tell you if you may qualify to file a personal injury lawsuit.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation for Medical Bills

  • Medical treatment
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy

Investigating the accident to determine who may be at fault is essential. Although a property owner or manager is often the liable party in these cases, there are exceptions.

Premises Liability Cases in Manhattan

Accidents can happen to anyone. However, they are often more likely to happen if those responsible for maintaining a safe property or environment are careless. Premises liability laws require property owners, managers, and other parties in control of a property to use sensible care to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition.

While property owners cannot exercise universal and total control over the safety of guests, they can and must take reasonable steps to minimize the chances of others being harmed due to hazardous conditions on the premises. Unfortunately, property owners sometimes neglect this duty. You may be entitled to compensation if you or a loved one in the Manhattan area were harmed in a slip and fall or similar accident as a result of their carelessness.

You can review your case with a Manhattan personal injury lawyer to learn more. At Shulman & Hill, our Manhattan premises liability attorneys are prepared to help you pursue the total compensation you may be entitled to.

Manhattan Premises Liability Cases: An Example

Perhaps you are shopping at the supermarket. At some point, an item fell from a shelf. You turn the corner without seeing it and trip as a result. This accident leaves you with severe injuries that require costly medical treatment.

Can you file a premises liability lawsuit to recover compensation? That depends on certain factors, including the foreseeability of the accident.

The supermarket’s owners, employees, and managers must watch for hazards that can cause accidents like the one in the above example. They need to vigilantly monitor the premises for such hazards and address them promptly when they find any. You may have a case if, by the time you tripped over the item on the floor, someone should have found it and returned the item to its spot on the shelf.

Other Examples of Manhattan Premises Liability Cases

Manhattan premises liability cases come in many forms. The following are merely a few additional examples:

  • You tripped over an obstruction in the parking lot of a business because weak outdoor lighting prevented you from seeing the obstruction on a dark night.
  • You slipped over ice in the outdoor areas of a property because ownership failed to apply de-icing agents in a timely manner.
  • You were injured on a defective escalator, elevator, or similar piece of equipment because ownership had not followed a proper maintenance schedule.
  • The lack of proper security measures at a nightclub or similar establishment allowed a violent individual to enter the premises and commit a shooting or similar act of violence, injuring you and others.
  • You were exposed to hazardous chemicals or substances on someone’s property that lacked warning signs.

Statute of Limitations for a Premises Liability Case in Manhattan

Generally, there is a statute of limitations of three years for personal injury cases per CPLR § 214. Various factors can shift this deadline, but it is still crucial to act quickly when taking legal action after a premises liability injury.
