Elements of a Successful Premises Liability Claim

In New York, property owners are responsible for ensuring the safety of their guests—whether they own a restaurant, apartment complex, shopping mall, or private residence. If a property owner fails to conduct routine maintenance or remove potential hazards, and someone who visits the property is injured as a result, they can be held accountable. This is called premises liability. However, in order to file a successful claim, the victim must be able to establish that:

  • They were lawfully on the property (i.e. they were not trespassing)
  • The owner knew, or should have known, about a hazard on the property
  • The owner failed to remove the hazard or warn visitors about the risks
  • The property owner’s negligence caused their injuries or damages
