Understanding Premises Liability In New York
Whether the case involves an alleged slip and fall, snow or ice hazard, dog bite, or broken stairway, when an accident occurs on property, there is a chance that the property owner can be held liable for the accident damages.
Each state has unique laws and standards that govern who can be held liable and to what degree. In New York, liability is based on one’s occupancy, ownership, control or special use of the premises. Landowners have a duty to exercise “reasonable care” under the circumstances.
At Bailey, Johnson & Peck, P.C., we work with our clients to investigate the allegations and develop the appropriate defense. In all matters of insurance and potential liability, we strive to effectively and efficiently defend our clients’ interests and obtain a speedy and equitable resolution to each case.
