What Are the Most Common Premises Liability Claims?

July 23rd, 2021 by

Slip-and-falls are among the most common premises liability cases, but premises liability law goes far beyond slipping, tripping, and falling. Premises liability refers to the duty of care that property owners have towards others.

Some property owners neglect their responsibilities, which could lead to property damage and serious injuries. When this happens in New York, victims can contact the personal injury lawyers of Hill & Moin to learn their legal options.

Most Common Types of Premises Liability Cases

What are the most common premises liability claims?

  • Slip and fall injuries: Though people fall for many reasons, some of them are preventable. For instance, if employees do not clean spills promptly or fail to warn customers of wet floors, an injured individual could pursue personal injury damages. If negligence played a role in an accident, the responsible party could be held liable.
  • Poisonings or exposure to toxic materials: Sometimes, people get sick because they have been exposed to toxins or fumes at work or in a rented house. Common environmental toxins include carbon monoxide, asbestos, lead, and pesticides.
  • Construction accidents: You could benefit from professional guidance every step of the way when you hire a personal injury attorney after a construction accident. Our knowledgeable legal team has assisted clients in navigating the complex workers’ compensation system, even undocumented workers. We can also give you additional options in the case your claim was recently denied. As a visitor to a construction site, you have rights too. Call (212) 668-6000 for a free case evaluation.
  • Elevator or escalator accidents: Elevators and similar machinery require continual maintenance to function well. Suppose a business owner, for example, does not inspect and repair an elevator on a regular basis. In that case, he or she could face a personal injury lawsuit if someone is hurt in the elevator.
  • Fire injuries: In New York, buildings must meet fire safety codes. A property owner who ignores these regulations could put people’s lives in danger.
  • Dog bites: Did a dog attack you or your child in New York? You may seek damages, such as medical costs and veterinary bills, if a dangerous dog bit you. To learn your rights, request a free legal consultation today.
  • Inadequate security: Diligent property owners do what they can to keep their land or buildings safe. Broken or missing cameras and locks or poor lighting can add up to a dangerous situation for people visiting the property. If employees or customers sustain injuries during a robbery, assault, or act of vandalism, New Yorkers can contact our law firm to receive a free consultation. There’s no obligation to hire us, and you could discover that you are due significant compensation.

Of course, there are many other cases that may be covered by premises liability law but are not mentioned in this list. Why not send a message to let us know about your case?

Common Damages Your Claim Could Pursue

Your confidential case review could reveal that you are eligible for financial compensation, such as:

  • Medical expenses: Many people underestimate the impact of medical bills after a premises liability accident. In addition to causing unnecessary stress, medical debt may ruin your credit score for years in the future.
  • Lost wages: Hill & Moin attorneys understand that each day matters when you are struggling to support your family. When you miss work because of your injuries, a premises liability settlement could pay for a significant portion of your lost wages.
  • Psychological injuries: Physical pain and the trauma of an accident can affect your emotional and mental well-being. The experienced lawyers across our network can help you investigate your legal remedies for compensation.
  • Property damage: If your car or house got damaged in a premises liability accident, you could seek financial compensation for repairs or the replacement value.
  • Funeral and burial costs: When someone dies in a premises liability accident, surviving family members may file a wrongful death claim to cover reasonable expenses for a funeral service.

The Time You Have Left To File a Claim Depends On Your Case

In New York, premises liability lawsuits are subject to a deadline called the statute of limitations. After a specific period of time passes, you could lose your eligibility to pursue justice and financial compensation for your case. You have the right to sue for proper compensation, but time could run out if you wait too long.

You may have more or less time to act when compared with other premises liability claims. It all depends. The statute of limitations differs by circumstances, and a knowledgeable attorney can explain these to you.

On behalf of our clients, we have won lawsuits that paid for thousands of dollars of past and future medical treatment and rehabilitation costs. Would you like to secure your future?
