What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability occurs when you are legally on someone else’s property, and you get injured. If the owner’s negligence was to blame for your injury, then the property owner would be liable for your injuries. Premises liability often involves slips, trips, and falls, but also includes any unsafe condition that results in an injury. 

 

How Can You Prove Premises Liability?

If you are injured because of an unsafe property condition, a premises accident lawyer in Smithtown may ask that you show:

  • You were lawfully on the property, or the owner knew you would be on the property
  • The owner of the property knew about the unsafe condition and they failed to repair it or warn of the condition of it.
  • The owner’s negligence was the direct cause of the injury

 

Examples of Premises Liability Cases

 

Slip and fall cases are the most straightforward premises liability cases. These are normally caused by:

  • Defective staircases
  • Accumulation of ice or snow
  • wet/oily floors
  • Hidden extension cords
  • Unsecure rugs or carpets
  • Loose/broken floors, sidewalks, steps or stairs

Other cases that may require you to need a premises accident lawyer in Smithtown involve inadequate building security and swimming pool accidents. Normally, if you are trespassing on another person’s property, they would not be liable for your injuries, even if the owner knew of the dangerous condition, however, there are a few exceptions that your premises accident lawyer in Smithtown would make known to you.

Testimonials
  • "“I was recently in a very bad motorcycle accident, I was recommended to Barrie from a close friends mother and am very glad I was. Since the day of my call to Barrie she was committed to helping me in every aspect of the process, and any question that me or my entire family had. She got me the first part of my settlement very fast, and when the insurance companies tried to fight the second part she was relentless on getting me what I was needed. Furthermore she was successful on me getting the entire settlement and kept me up to date the entire time the process went on. She is self-less, attentive, easy to communicate with, easy to get in contact with, and was respectfully aggressive to get what I the client needed. I will highly recommend her to anyone that needs a lawyer. I am very grateful for her.”"  -Jesse
