Injured on Unsafe Property?
Western New York Premises Liability Attorneys
Property owners have an obligation to maintain their land, buildings and other facilities so they are safe for visitors, tenants, passersby and anyone conducting business there. That obligation is mandated in one form or another in federal, state and local laws, though it may differ from region to region. But the fundamental premise for property owners in Western New York and elsewhere is that if someone is injured on the property due to owner negligence, the owner is liable.
That obligation makes sense in that customers, authorized visitors, employees and tenants can expect to access the property without risking personal injury. Unfortunately, some property owners neglect their duty and people are hurt every day, sometimes seriously. The premises liability lawyers from Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh have extensive experience when it comes to holding property owners accountable for failing to do their part.
If you suffered an injury that’s the result of the property owner’s negligence, you can file a lawsuit to recover costs for your medical bills, lost earnings from missed work, disfigurement, pain, permanent physical disability and emotional distress.
The Dangers of Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability can be cited for failure to maintain a property and for failing to repair a dangerous area or hazard when brought to the owner’s attention. An extensive range of hazardous situations can result in a variety of injuries, such as:
- Unsafe stairways
- Slippery surfaces
- Exposure to hazardous or toxic substances, such as mold or lead
- Defective sidewalks
- Improper or poorly maintained electrical wiring
- Poorly lit areas
- Inadequate security
