Under New York law, property owners must take adequate care to ensure that their premises are safe. Depending on he type of accident, you may be unsure whether it occurred because you were not paying enough attention to what you were doing or because there was a dangerous condition present. The first thing to consider is whether the property owner caused the safety hazard, knew about it and ignored it, or should have known about it. If the answer is “yes” to any of these questions, you may have a valid premises liability claim. Liability will often depend on how regularly and thoroughly the property owner maintained the premises.
