NYC Premises Liability Attorneys

From slip and fall accidents to elevator accidents, we’re here to help

Visitors to homes and businesses expect them to be reasonably safe. When a hazard causes an injury, the property owner or tenant can be held responsible for the damages.

Barasch McGarry Salzman & Penson helps ensure responsible parties are held accountable when they fail to keep their commercial, residential or public property in a reasonably safe condition as required by law.

Proving liability

Not every injury is the fault of the property or business owner. You must prove more than just that you were injured while on someone else’s property. You must show that the owner or occupier fell below the standard of care by failing to inspect and regularly maintain the property, identify unsafe conditions, or repair or warn others of potential hazards.

From dog bites to elevator accidents, premises liability lawsuits can stem from injuries caused by a variety of hazardous conditions. In our many decades of experience, our lawyers have handled cases involving:

  • Concealed holes
  • Crumbling curbs
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Defects in chairs or benches
  • Falling objects
  • Icy walks
  • Improperly secured mats
  • Inadequate security
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Open excavations
  • Standing water
  • Spills
  • Uncleared snow
  • Uneven pavement
  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Defective flooring
  • Broken or missing handrails
  • Aggressive dogs and other pets
