Were you hurt on someone else’s property? The property owner or manager might be to blame. Talk with our premises liability attorneys to find out more. We’ll investigate the accident and explain your options. If the property was dangerous, you might win compensation.
After getting hurt in a public location or on someone’s private property, you have to figure out what happened. It’s tough, especially after accidents in public places like parks, subway stops, or stores. Was there a hazard, like loose carpeting or a spill? Should the property owner or manager have done something about it? We answer all of these questions.
Our Bronx premises liability attorneys know how to investigate these accidents. By gathering evidence, we find out what happened. We also figure out who was at fault.
Because we know the New York premises liability law and the New York City Building Code, we evaluate whether the owner or manager broke the law. They may have violated one or more building codes, which could help you claim.
We’ll demand full and fair compensation for your injuries but don’t expect an easy time. You may have to go up against a major retailer, wealthy landlord, or municipality with lawyers. We highly recommend leveling the playing field by hiring a Bronx premises liability lawyer.
When looking for the best premises liability lawyer, look for someone who wins these cases. At Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., we have years of excellent case results, including premises liability settlements worth millions of dollars. We can’t guarantee multimillion-dollar results, but we can promise to fight for the maximum compensation possible.
Talk with us about how we’ve handled similar cases in the past and the results we’ve won.
Property owners in the Bronx have a duty of care toward their guests. They have to take reasonable steps to maintain a safe environment and protect visitors from preventable harm. You have to show they failed to do that to win compensation.
Your right to compensation depends on several factors, including whether you were hurt in a public or private location and why you were on the property. A property owner has to protect its guests, but it has less responsibility toward trespassers.
If you were hurt on property owned by a municipality, then the process for demanding compensation is different than if you were injured on private property. Under New York Law, you have to file a notice of claim with the right administrative agency in 90 days. That’s why it’s essential to call a premises liability attorney quickly. You might have a tight deadline.
You won’t always sue the property owner after an accident. Sometimes, you’ll go after whoever was in charge of the property at the time. That could be a commercial tenant or property manager. We’ll look into this while we investigate your case. We make sure to go after the right person or business.
Our premises liability attorneys handle cases involving:
We’ve represented individuals suffering from:
Whatever injuries you’ve experienced, we’ll help you get the best medical care and demand the maximum compensation.
Let HKD Explain Premises Liability Law & What You Deserve:
To win compensation, you have to prove:
A big question during your case is whether the owner or manager knew about the hazard. There’s a difference between actual notice and constructive notice of a problem.
You can still win compensation if the owner or manager didn’t have actual notice of the problem. It’s possible they should’ve known about it based on how long the hazard was there. If the court believes the owner or manager had constructive notice, you can still receive compensation.
The property owner or manager will defend themselves. They might say you were trespassing, or you knew the risks by entering the property. The latter is common with amusement parks or other attractions. Or they might say the hazard was obvious, and you could’ve avoided it. Hiring a premises liability attorney is the best way to get ready for these defenses.
Through a premises liability claim, we’ll demand compensation for your:
Premises liability accidents are unexpected and devastating. You or your child could be injured anywhere, from the local bodega to a big box store or public sidewalk. Whatever your situation, call Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C. as soon as you can. Our premises liability attorneys will get started on your case without any upfront fee. You don’t pay us unless we recover compensation.
