Why Choose Tocci Law?
When you are injured on another’s property, their go-to tactic for limiting responsibility is to attempt to blame you. Nearly every premises liability case filed in New York asserts legal defenses alleging that the injured person failed to see a defect that was “open and obvious” or their behavior was risky, and that it was their fault they became injured. We get ahead of those defenses from the outset before they have the opportunity to conjure damaging evidence.
What is Premises Liability?
“Premises liability” is the legal term for holding a property or business owner responsible for injuries caused by unsafe or defective conditions on their property. A property owner, landlord, business owner, property manager, town, county, or state may be legally responsible for injuries caused by defects or dangerous occurrences on their property.
