When to Call an Attorney in Dutchess County
It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after an accident and injury on someone else’s property in New York. You must initiate the claims process within at least three years from the date of your accident or the courts will most likely refuse to hear your case. An attorney can help you meet New York’s deadline as well as identify the proper defendant for your case. While this will typically be the property owner, you may also have a case against the Dutchess County government, depending on the situation. If your case involves government housing or government property you may be required to file a notice of claim within ninety days of your accident. Your lawyer can handle the rest of your claim, as well, including negotiating with a business or homeowner’s insurance company on your behalf.

Basic Rules of New York Premises Liability
In general, you will have grounds for a premises liability claim in New York if you were an invited visitor who suffered an injury or illness while on someone else’s property. Property owners in New York owe a duty to search for hidden hazards, repair known defects and warn guests of potential dangers. Breaching any of these duties could cause a preventable accident and injury. If this is what happened to you or a loved one, you may be able to hold the owner legally responsible for your related losses.
