Premises liability requires a proactive approach

Premises liability is an area of concern for any New York commercial property owner. To the extent possible, most leasing contracts between the owner and the tenant seek to place the burden for liability on the tenant as the one who likely has more control over the safety of the premises. However, an injured plaintiff can, and often does, include multiple parties as defendants. For a variety of reasons, the landlord is often included, but there are several ways for a property owner to reduce the risk of exposure in a premises liability lawsuit.

Slip-and-fall accidents on small business properties

Residents of New York should know that if they slip, trip or fall on a small business property, they may be able to hold the owner liable for their injuries. According to premises liability law, owners have a duty to prevent any dangerous conditions from arising on the property. If they are aware of a dangerous condition, then they must address it in a reasonable amount of time.
