What does a Brooklyn Heights premises liability case look like?

Understanding a premises liability case can be complicated. Not all injuries that happen on another person’s property are the fault of the property owner. However, when a property owner fails to take steps to keep their premises safe from reasonably foreseeable hazards to guests, they can be held accountable for damages.

In a premises liability lawsuit, you must prove that:

  • The defendant (the property owner) owed you a duty
  • The defendant breached that duty
  • The defendant’s breach of duty caused your injury
  • Your injury led to damages

What are some common causes of premises injuries?

There are numerous ways that a person can be harmed due to the negligence of a property owner. Some of the most common cases that the team at Paulozzi LPA handles include:

  • Slip and fall or trip and fall incidents – These are the number one cause of premises liability cases and can be caused by wet floors, loose carpeting, loose floor material, wobbly stairs, uneven walking surfaces, low-lying obstacles, and more.
  • Poor maintenance – Property owners should always regularly inspect their premises to ensure there are no known hazards and quickly repair anything that could cause patrons harm. This includes regularly inspecting stairs, benches, store displays, shelving, elevators, escalators, and more.
  • Pools and hot tubs – Properties with pools (commercial and residential) must take steps to keep pools and hot tubs safe. This includes ensuring a fence is around the pool and there is a locking gate to keep young children from accidentally falling in. This also includes maintaining the area around the pool and properly using all chemicals to prevent illnesses.
  • Private residences – Private residence owners can also be held accountable for fixing reasonably foreseeable hazards or properly warning guests of hazards.

This is not a complete list of possible premises injury causes. Please speak to a qualified attorney about your case.
