How Does Premises Liability Law Work?

Property owners have a duty of care to lawful visitors. They must inspect their properties for hazards or defects, repair known issues, and warn of other hazards known to be on the property. If a property owner is negligent in completing these duties and someone suffers an injury as a result, the property owner will be legally responsible for the victim’s damages. In general, you or your lawyer must prove four main elements to have a valid premises liability claim:

  1. You were on the property: New York law applies equally if your were there lawfully or if you were a trespasser.
  2. The property owner breached a duty of care to you: The owner of the property must have had a legal responsibility to keep you reasonably safe.
  3. The breach of duty caused your accident and injury: The property owner’s breach of duty must be the proximate cause of your injury.
  4. Damages: You must have compensable damages from your property-related accident, such as personal injuries, medical bills, property damages, or lost wages.

If you or your lawyer can collect enough evidence to prove these four elements as more likely to be true than not true, the property owner will have to pay for your economic and non-economic damages. A compensatory award could reimburse you for both past and future losses.
