Dedicated New york Premises Liability Attorneys Represent Accident Victims
Experienced premises liability lawyers help clients in the New York State seek compensation
Commercial and residential property owners and managers have a duty to maintain their homes, stores and general grounds in good repair — or to properly warn visitors if there are known hazards to be avoided. When property owners fail to do so and you suffer harm as a result, you may have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. At Lawrence Leonard, Attorney at Law, our injury attorneys have experience representing people in New York who have been injured on someone's property due to the owner's negligence. We possess an impressive knowledge of New York premises liability laws and will seek to hold the responsible property owner accountable.
Skilled premises liability firm helps you prove negligence
When we represent you in a premises liability case, we must be able to prove that the property owner was negligent — that the owner, whether a person or business, failed to use reasonable care maintaining the property safely for visitors. Not all such accidents, however, automatically make property owners liable: you must be able to show that the owner knew or should have reasonably known that unsafe conditions existed and failed to remedy them, and that those conditions were the cause of your injury.
Knowledgeable attorneys advise clients injured in a range of accidents
Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability cases. They can be caused by a wide range of hazardous conditions, such as wet floors, cracked pavement, uneven steps, and snow- and ice-covered sidewalks. Falls on these surfaces can result in injuries that range in severity from cuts and bruises to broken bones and head trauma. If you've slipped and fallen on someone's premises, we will seek to hold the property owner accountable for the harm you've suffered.
Premises liability suits may also be brought for other types of property accidents, involving injuries caused by:
- Inadequate security
- Unsafe structures
- Building collapses
- Falling objects
- Construction zone conditions
- Elevator or escalator failures
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Dog bites
For any injuries suffered on someone's premises in which the property owner can be held liable, we will seek full and fair compensation for past and future medical costs, past and future lost wages, past and future pain and suffering, and other relevant damages.
Determined advocates take a detailed approach to your case
To succeed in your case, we undertake a full investigation of the circumstances behind your accident. That may include:
- Consulting medical professionals to evaluate the extent of your injuries and the cost of recovery
- Photographing the scene of your accident and preserving other evidence
- Researching whether anyone else has been injured in the same location, or if anyone has previously complained about the property’s condition
We have helped clients file suit against property owners, landlords, companies, management companies, and other at-fault parties in premises liability claims. In all cases, we will structure sound arguments designed to help you receive the maximum compensation possible.
