Hardworking Rockland County attorneys establish property owner negligence
A premises liability lawsuit may be justified against a property owner who created, or failed to prevent, a dangerous condition that causes harm to a visitor. Some hazards that show up on poorly maintained properties include:
- Wet or uneven floors — Slippery floors, damaged stairs and potholes are common causes for slip, trip and fall injuries.
- Obstructed walkways — A path or hallway cluttered with objects or littered with debris can be an obstacle course for passersby.
- Insufficient security — A commercial property manager who does not try to prevent foreseeable harm to guests, such as by installing locks and security cameras, may be liable to visitors for injuries resulting from accidents or criminal activity.
- Toxic conditions — Exposure to carbon monoxide, black mold or other unsafe substances can result from inadequate property maintenance.
- Unsafe elevators — New York has strict laws meant to ensure elevator safety. A property owner who hires an unlicensed repair person puts a building’s occupants in danger. A licensed elevator inspector who forges an inspection report may also be liable to people injured.
When you retain our firm as your counsel, we make prompt efforts to collect and preserve evidence that may become crucial to holding the property owner liable for your injuries.
