If you’ve been injured due to unsafe or hazardous conditions on someone else’s property, you may be able to pursue a premises liability case with the help of a personal injury attorney. Robert K. Young Law is a personal injury law firm in Merrick, NY that specializes in representing clients who have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence.
Premises liability cases can arise in a variety of situations, including slip and fall accidents, dog bites, swimming pool accidents, and more. In order to qualify for a premises liability case, you must be able to demonstrate that the property owner or manager failed to take reasonable steps to ensure your safety and that this failure directly led to your injuries.
For example, if you slip and fall on a wet floor in a grocery store and suffer a broken bone, you may be able to pursue a premises liability case against the store if you can show that they failed to promptly clean up the spill or put up a warning sign. Similarly, if you are bitten by a dog that was known to be aggressive and the owner failed to properly restrain the animal, you may be able to pursue a premises liability case against the owner.
In order to establish liability in a premises liability case, your personal injury attorney will need to gather evidence to support your claim. This may include eyewitness testimony, surveillance footage, photographs of the scene, and medical records documenting your injuries.
If you are able to establish liability, you may be able to recover compensation for a variety of damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In some cases, you may also be able to recover punitive damages, which are intended to punish the negligent party for their actions.
If you believe that you may have a premises liability case, it’s important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Robert K.
