If you have a right to be on someone’s property, it’s reasonable to expect that the premises should be safe. This is not only basic decency, but a legal obligation. Premise liability refers to the liability of property owner for injuries that occur to people on their premises. This is not only limited to commercial spaces, but also private residences, vacant lots and other types of property. Serious injuries can occur due to negligent owners from broken bones to brain injuries.
Premises Liability Claims
If you have been injured because of unsafe conditions, you may be entitled to receive compensation under New York State law.
In New York, a premises liability claim may include:

The burden of proving a premises liability injury lies with the injured person.
