New York Premises Accident Causes & Injuries

By WRSH on January 30, 2014 - Comments off

New York premises liability cases involve accidents in which a person is injured on someone else’s property. It can be a business, residence, or public property. When an individual sustains an injury, the owner of the property can be held legally responsible for all damages that resulted from his or her negligence.

There are several factors that can contribute to a New York premises liability injury including, but not limited to:

  • Broken sidewalks
  • Broken stairs
  • Poorly maintained or uneven surfaces
  • Poorly marked or a failure to mark elevation changes
  • Slippery floors
  • Elevator floors that are uneven with the ground

Even if an injury seems small at the time of an accident, if left untreated, it is possible for an injury to significantly worsen. It is always best to seek medical attention after an accident, such as a slip-and-fall, to ensure that no serious injuries occurred. Some more severe injuries that can result from a premises liability accident are:

  • Broken bones
  • Head/brain injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Spinal cord injuries

It is the responsibility of all property owners to ensure that their premises are safe, whether it be a business, residence, or otherwise. When that responsibility is ignored and an innocent person is injured, the victim has the right to hold them liable with the help of a skilled attorney.
