Premises Liability in New York
Under New York law, a property owner must exercise reasonable care to maintain their property in a safe condition, taking into consideration the possibility of injury to others, the seriousness of such injury, and the burden of avoiding such risk. A property owner must consider any foreseeable dangers on their property and take steps to rectify them or warn others of the dangers. However, a property owner has no duty to warn of any conditions that are in plain view, obvious, or easily discoverable to anyone who reasonably uses their own senses to avoid danger.
Recovering Compensation for a Slip and Fall Injury
The value of your claim will depend on the severity of your injuries and the damages you can prove. Having a slip and fall attorney with experience can make all the difference in your ability to recover full and fair compensation for your injuries. It is not unusual for defendants in a slip and fall case to blame the victim for their injury. New York follows the pure comparative negligence rule, which means that even if you contributed in some way to your injury, you can still recover the percentage of damages caused by the defendant. At Gold & Gold, we fight hard to make sure that we get the best outcome possible for our clients, and we are prepared to go to trial to do so.
