New York Premises Liability Lawyers

The law also requires building and home owners to correct any defects after a reasonable amount of time for the landlord to learn of the dangerous condition. 

This includes wet floors and broken staircase handrails.

For example, the owner of a New York office building may be provided a timeframe of approximately 20 minutes to discover and safeguard a wet floor hazard in the building lobby caused by dripping umbrellas on a rainy day.

In addition, accidents occurring outside – or in front of – a property may still be attributable to the negligence of the property owner.

This includes a frozen block of snow falling off the roof of a building, as well as icy sidewalks causing a slip & fall injury.

Cracks in the sidewalk causing a trip and fall can also subject the property owner to liability.
