Property Owner Responsibility in Accidents and Attacks
The owners of commercial properties such as office buildings, retail stores, hotels and apartment buildings have a legal duty to reasonably ensure the safety and well being of patrons, invited guests and residents. This duty includes providing adequate lighting and safe floor surfaces and taking prudent security measures to prevent guests from becoming crime victims. Under the legal concept of premises liability, a property owner can be held accountable to pay damages if negligent maintenance or insufficient security causes a serious injury or loss of life.
Municipal Liability for Defective Sidewalks
The laws governing municipal liability for dangerous sidewalks are tricky. Building owners now have more responsibility for sidewalk accidents than ever before. We will protect your rights against a negligent City of New York or private owner and get you the compensation and results that you deserve.
