New York Premises Liability Attorneys

Responsibility for maintaining safety on private and public properties rests with property owners and municipalities, respectively. Premises liability claims can be filed against property owners who neglect to maintain reasonable safety standards at personal homes, stores, and city- and state-owned properties (including sidewalks and parks).

Based on New York premises liability laws, any person injured as the result of dangerous conditions on a property may pursue personal injury compensation by filing a lawsuit. At Marder, Eskesen & Nass, Attorneys at Law, our attorneys handle lawsuits against public and private entities in premises liability cases all the time. We provide top-quality, attentive service to each of our clients, and your case will be personalized to your specific needs and the conditions of your case should we choose to handle it.

What Might Qualify As A 'Dangerous Condition' In A Premises Liability Case?

  • Falling ceilings
  • Stairwells in disrepair
  • Elevators and escalators in disrepair
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Handrails in disrepair or that are built too low to the ground
  • Falling objects, wet floors and other hazards that cause slips and trips in stores and other buildings
  • Raised or broken sidewalks and other defects
  • Parking lot hazards
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Falling objects from buildings
  • Open swimming pools
  • Holes and other hazards on construction sites

Attacks on properties of any type (e.g., sexual assault, mugging and attacks at school) could be cause for a premises liability claim if injury, loss or damage results from the attack.

Our lawyers possess extensive knowledge of New York's premises liability laws. If we can show that you exercised appropriate caution while on the property and that the property owner neglected to keep the property in a safe condition or properly warn you of a hazard, you may have a case for personal injury compensation.

We will represent your best interests and pursue your maximum compensation for medical costs, lost wages, psychological trauma, rehabilitation, long-term care and more.
