Manhattan Premises Liability Lawyer
If a property owner’s negligence caused you to be injured by dangerous conditions in a building or on a property, you can seek financial compensation for your losses. To find out how, contact a Manhattan premises liability lawyer.
When you go somewhere, be it a friend’s house, restaurant, store, or anywhere else, you expect the area to be safe and that you will leave injury-free. This is a completely reasonable expectation, but unfortunately, it’s not always the case.
From dog bites to slip-and-falls, there are many different ways that you can be hurt while on someone else’s property, and an experienced Manhattan premises liability lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP will know how to investigate the property hazard responsible and build a case that fully illustrates your need for financial compensation.
Understanding Premises Liability Laws
As mentioned, premises liability law governs the expectation that the owner or manager of a property maintain a safe environment. Depending on the property hazard involved, injuries sustained in these cases can range from severe burns to broken bones and worse.
Premises liability cases are often complex and have a number of challenges that need to be overcome. For example, the property owner might claim that you were not lawfully allowed to be on the premises, effectively disputing your status as a visitor.
Even if your right to be on the grounds is not in dispute, it’s likely that the negligent property owner will immediately move to address the property hazard that hurt you, possibly interfering with the evidence that can be used to prove your case. This makes it essential to contact a Manhattan premises liability lawyer as soon as possible.
Liability in these cases can quickly get complicated, especially when multiple parties are involved. Even at a private residence, there can be many different people who are potentially responsible. Your attorney will investigate the scene in order to gather evidence that can be used to prove your case and successfully resolve your personal injury claim.
Compensation for a Premises Liability Claim
Regardless of who was at fault, it’s essential that you recover the maximum amount of compensation possible. If an insurance company or opposing attorney is involved, you can count on any initial settlement offer to be far less than what you’re entitled to.
Your premises liability lawyer will fight for comprehensive compensation to cover all the financial expenses and lost quality of life that relate to your injury:
- Medical costs, both current and future, as estimated by your medical provider
- Rehabilitative and physical therapy, if needed to recover from your injuries
- Property damage, including any personal property you had on you at the time of the accident
- Lost wages, income, and earning potential
- Non-economic damages, including pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost enjoyment of life
