Premises Liability Archives

Premises liability claims can stem from several incidents

Premises liability claims can include a variety of situations. The tie that binds them all together is that the property owner acted in a negligent manner in a way that caused harm to another person. Last week, we discussed what to do if you have been bitten by a dog. One of the things that you can do is to seek compensation for the injuries you suffered. That would fall under a premises liability claim.

What should I do if I'm bitten by a dog?

When you are bitten by a dog, there are a lot of things that you have to consider. Not only do you have to find out if the dog has been properly vaccinated from rabies, you also have to keep an eye on the wound for signs of infection. In all dog bite cases, it is a very good idea to seek out medical care for the wounds.

Slip-and-fall accident liability on sidewalks can vary

As we discussed last week, slip-and-fall accidents can lead to very serious injuries. If you recall, we discussed how much a hip fracture suffered in a fall can affect your life. We know that you didn't go out for the day thinking that you were going to fall and injure yourself. We can help you to seek compensation that you deserve for the injuries you suffered.

Snowy sidewalks can lead to falls that can lead to hip fractures

The winter months are here. That means that New York will soon turn into a snowy scene. As beautiful as the scenery is when the snow is falling, there is a huge risk that the pedestrians face when the snow falls. Icy sidewalks and snowy pathways can lead to falls. Those falls often come with injuries. In some cases, the injury that occurs might be a hip fracture.

What is a property owner's duty to prevent accidents?

Last week, we discussed an incident that injured five people at Bryant Park. If your recall, a tree fell and injured people who were visiting the park. That post is a good reminder that property owners have a legal duty to take appropriate steps to prevent injuries. When a person is injured on another person's property, the person who was injured might be interested in seeking compensation. One of the points that has to be covered when seeking compensation is the victim's status on the property at the time of the accident.

All property owners have a duty to keep the people who come onto their property safe. This duty is universal for all property owners and not just those who own private property. Even municipalities and entities who own lands that are open for public enjoyment must keep their property safe. A recent accident in Bryant Park shows how important it is for property owners to regularly inspect the property for any issues that can affect the safety of others.

Rabies treatments are costly for people bitten by animals

Rabies is a serious problem for any animal or human who is exposed to the virus. That is one reason why it is vital for all pet owners to ensure that their pets are vaccinated against the virus. All these pet owners need to think about when trying to decide if they are going to have their animal vaccinated is the story of "Old Yeller." If you have read the book, you know that the dog gets rabies and the end of the story is a sad one.

Dog bites are a premises liability problem in New York

Premises liability can mean a lot of things. If a person who has the right, or even the implied right -- like a postman delivering your mail -- to be on your property gets hurt, he or she may have the right to bring the owner of the property to civil court. If you have been bitten by a dog, you may have a case that can be heard before the court of New York.

What is premises liability and what action can I take?

Premises liability is a problem for anyone who has been injured in a store, on a stairwell, at a corner due to crumbling sidewalk areas or due to snowy sidewalks. It can mean serious injury and chronic pain. Many people just mark it down as carelessness or a simple accident and don't take action to try and make a change to the situation for those who come after them.
