Premises Liability

Queens Premises Liability Attorneys

Representing injured clients in New York

All property owners have a responsibility to passersby. Whether municipal, private or commercial property, every owner has an obligation to ensure the safety of people who legally enter the property and the sidewalks assigned to said property. Unfortunately, not every property owner has our best interests in mind and don’t always live up to their obligations. State and local laws are in place to protect us when the negligence of a property owner leads to injury. If you were injured on a property and were there for legitimate reasons, you may be entitled to compensation. If you can prove the negligence of the property owner, you could receive damages for medical bills, lost wages and the impact to your quality of life. Individuals and municipalities have a responsibility to regularly inspect, maintain, and repair their property. Hazards must be addressed. If a property owner knew or should have known about a problem and you were injured because of it, you may be able to take legal action. To successfully win a personal injury case, you will have to provide evidence. That said, if you need quality legal support from an effective and experienced attorney contact The Law Offices of George Poulos.

What hazards can lead to serious injury?

All properties have a propensity for danger. No matter where you travel, there are hazards that can quickly cause injury. It is important for property owners to address these matters in a reasonable manner. Some of the many hazards we face include:

  • Weather conditions
  • Code violations
  • Slippery substances
  • Noxious substances
  • Dangerous animals
  • Inadequate security
  • Inadequate lighting

Left unattended, these hazards can lead to pedestrian accidents, slip and falls, toxic exposure, animal bite injuries, criminal activity and more.

Collecting evidence

It is important to collect evidence if you are able. If you are not able to take action, contact our firm to come to the scene on your behalf. Always seek medical attention first. When you tend to your medical needs, the medical professional’s report will document your injury, including the location and approximate time. If you have a camera on your phone, take some pictures of what hurt you and speak to witnesses of the accident. Often times, a property owner will quickly address a hazard after an accident, practically erasing evidence. Especially with weather-related conditions, including snow, ice, and standing water, nature can quickly erase evidence. Our firm is ready to act quickly. If you are injured, contact us to secure evidence on your behalf.
