Premises liability means injured people may not be alone

New Yorkers are a tough and hardy crowd. They're used to taking care of themselves. Sometimes, however, accidents happen and people get injured through now fault of their own. In those situations, it's reasonable to expect the party responsible for the accident to assume the costs. This includes situations where a New Yorker is injured due to a property owner's negligence.

Bus crash takes fourth New York pedestrian victim in 48 hours

New York is one of the busiest and fastest-moving cities on the planet, as well as home to nearly 2 million children. One of the difficulties of public safety and law enforcement officials in the "city that never sleeps" is balancing the need for transit with the need for safety.

Premises liability and the legal status of the visitor

According to the legal idea of premises liability, a property owner in New York must maintain a reasonably safe environment for lawful entrants. If they fail in this, such as by neglecting to clear a sidewalk of ice and snow, and an entrant is injured as a result, then the property owner will be held liable for losses connected to those injuries.
