In New York State, a Property Owner or even a Tenant has a duty to protect others from dangerous conditions or defects on his, her or its property. A property owner or tenant generally has a duty to take reasonable measures to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. If he does not do so, a Court may find that he or she was negligent. If this negligence causes injury, he is liable to the injured person. This is known as “premises liability”.
Every year, many people are seriously injured while in someone else’s home, place of business or on their land. Examples of premises liability can include:
- Defective stairs, porch, parking lot, escalator or patio
Wet or slippery floors
Negligent security for a property allowing criminal assaults or attacks
- Unsafe walkway, sidewalk or driveway due to ice or snow
Unsafe playground equipment
