In New York, owners of commercial and residential buildings have a duty to maintain their buildings and property in a reasonably safe manner. The duty to maintain applies to areas inside a building, such as stairways, lobbies, apartments, and ceilings. It also applies to the property surrounding the exterior of a building, such as sidewalks, walkways, courtyards and driveways.

Unfortunately, many owners fail to maintain their buildings and property, allowing them to fall into disrepair and become dangerous.

Do I Have a Claim against a Building Owner If I Was Injured in an Accident Caused by Dangerous Conditions on His Property?

In order to bring a claim against an owner for inadequate and defective maintenance of a building and/or property, an injured person must prove that the owner was aware or should have been aware of the dangerous condition that caused the accident. In addition, the injured person will have to prove that the dangerous condition was a substantial factor in causing the accident.

The Importance of Hiring an Experience New York Premises Liability Lawyer

In order to obtain the necessary evidence to prove your case, it is important to hire personal injury attorneys who have extensive experience in uncovering records, witnesses, surveillances videos and other evidentiary materials that will help prove your case. In addition to finding evidence, it is also important to find a legal representative that will hire expert engineers who can assist in determining why an accident happened, and help determine which parties are at fault for an accident.

Building owners will often hire other companies or individuals to help them maintain their buildings, such as management companies, elevator maintenance companies, snow removal contractors and many other types of companies. Depending on the type of accident, one or more of these companies may be responsible for an accident that occurred due to inadequate and defective maintenance. These companies can be responsible for several reasons, such as having caused or created a dangerous condition or based on a contractual obligation.

I met Diana Carnemolla and Howard S. Hershenhorn during the darkest time of our lives, when my husband was in a coma with very little chances to survive, due to a car accident. The compassion and professionalism that they showed myself and my family during such a difficult time combined with an incredible willingness to get the best results for us have shown us that we had made the absolute best choice. They not only fought extremely hard for what proved to be a very difficult case, but they also emotionally helped us through this incredible ordeal and have been a caring advocate for our family and our case. They got us the best results we could have expected given the circumstances and didn't give up when things got more challenging. We would absolutely recommend their Law Firm to handle the toughest of cases while providing such a great deal of personal support. Diana proved to be personally invested in our case ultimately seeking the best outcome for our family. We cannot thank them enough for what they have done for us. V.P.
