Experienced New York Premises Liability Attorneys

If you were injured on someone else’s property, then you may have the right to seek compensation. Business and property owners have a duty to maintain their property and keep it safe. If they fail this duty and someone gets injured, they may be found negligent in a premises liability action.

In order to have a claim for premises liability, you must show that your injury is a direct result of the property owner’s negligence. Our experienced premises liability lawyers at Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, Attorneys at Law in New York will help you determine whether your injury qualifies for a premises liability case and what your next steps should be. You may be able to obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Slip-And-Fall Injuries

Sometimes, a slip-and-fall can be more than just an embarrassing moment. Slip-and-falls can result in serious injuries to your head, neck, hip, leg, ankle, arm, elbow or hand. If you have slipped and fallen in New York City due to the negligence of the property owner, you may be entitled to compensation. Slip-and-falls can happen indoors and outdoors but are commonly caused by slipping on a spill in a grocery store, snowy and icy sidewalks, loose carpeting, uneven floors and poorly placed merchandise at a store.

After a fall, you may be experiencing a painful injury that requires expensive and time-consuming medical treatments and causes you to miss work. All of this can add up to a costly recovery period for which you shouldn’t be on the hook.

Lead Paint Poisoning

Although it’s a naturally occurring metal, lead can cause serious health problems when accumulated in the body. The effects of lead poisoning aren’t always noticeable and can take years to manifest, but the impacts are devastating. Paint is the most common cause of lead poisoning, especially in children. Anyone who lives or works in a structure built before 1978 could suffer from lead poisoning by coming into contact with toxic dust or chipped paint.

Under New York law, landlords must maintain their properties to be safe and habitable, including addressing lead-based paint hazards in the building. If a landlord fails to fix the issue, they may be held liable.

Dog Bites And Other Animal Bites

Many people want to stop and pet a dog they pass on the street. But sometimes, a harmless-looking puppy can lash out and bite, causing severe injuries. In New York, dog and pet owners are responsible for controlling their animals. They may be held liable for injuries their pets cause.

New York adheres to a combination of a “one bite” rule and strict liability. This means that dog owners are strictly liable for medical bills related to a dog attack. However, they are only responsible for additional damages if they know or should have known that their dog has been vicious in the past. Our experienced dog bite attorneys can help determine if you have the right to seek additional damages to get the compensation you deserve.

Burn Injuries

If you or a loved one has suffered from a first-degree burn, second-degree burn or third-degree burn injury due to a fire in a high-rise building, you already know the extreme pain that these injuries can cause. Recovery from burns can be lengthy and expensive, requiring different medical procedures with their own recovery times. Some burns heal without lasting damage, but others can leave significant scarring that can impact your well-being.

Fires in high-rise buildings are often caused by defects in the wiring of the premises or by landlord negligence, such as ingress or egress issues. Our attorneys will help investigate your accident to determine who is liable for your burn injury. If someone else’s negligence caused the fire that burned you, our team can help you fight for the compensation you need to start your recovery.
