Premises Liability Lawyer Serving Brooklyn, Staten Island and the Greater NYC Area
Brooklyn Premises Accident Attorney
When is a property owner responsible for your injury in New York?
Property ownership, management, and maintenance, are more than just making an apartment building, house, hotel, office, school, recreation destination, movie theater, shopping mall, restaurant, grocery store, or any other building or space used by the public comfortable and visually appealing to tenants, visitors, customers or guests. It is about ensuring their safety. A property owner must fix broken handrails and make sure wet or slippery areas are cleaned or marked, elevators and escalators are in safe condition, hallways and walkways are clear, and parking lots are well-lit and secure. When a property is not maintained in a safe condition, the property owner is responsible for the injuries sustained as a result. If you or a family member has been injured because property owners did not meet their obligation to ensure your safety when they knew or should have known that a dangerous condition existed, they are liable for your injuries. The Brooklyn law firm of Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your medical expenses, loss of income and loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more.
Premises accidents: more than slip-and-falls
Slipping and falling on an icy path or on a wet spot on a grocery store floor or tripping over uneven or broken stairs or torn carpet are among the most common types of premises liability accidents. In fact, slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are among the leading causes of injury in the United States, and are particularly dangerous for the elderly. However, there are many other injuries caused by lack of reasonable care on the part of a property owner, including:
- Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Accidents
- Defective Stairs /Stairway Accidents
- Elevator /Escalator Accidents
- Building, Balcony, Deck & Ceiling Collapse Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Defective Product Accidents
- Recreation Accidents

Workers Third-Party Accident Claims
If the injuries from your accident were caused by the negligence or reckless behavior of someone,e such as a home or building owner, other than your employer or co-worker, for example, if you are installing a new floor in and the ceiling collapses and lands on you, causing you serious physical injury, that home or building owner could be liable in a personal injury premises liability action, for injuries sustained from the accident through what is known as a third-party-liability claim. You can file a personal injury claim for your injuries sustained in the ceiling collapse accident, in addition to collecting workers compensation. This allows you to recover damages including pain and suffering, loss of consortium and other compensation that is not recoverable under New York workers compensation laws.
