Injured in a Unsafe Property?
Central New York Premises Liability Attorneys
Premises liability is the area of law related to the concept that the owner of a property, whether business or residential, is responsible for making sure that their property is safe. Failure to do so is usually considered negligence, and the owner can be held accountable if someone is injured on the property.
Despite what seems to be a clear obligation that comes with owning a property accessible to others, owners regularly ignore their duty and people are hurt, sometimes seriously, in easily preventable accidents. Our personal injury lawyers at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Welch & Smith deal every day with the painful outcome of property owners disregarding their duties. We help those injured to stand up for their rights and demand compensation from the negligent owners.
