Causes of New York Premises Liability Accidents

While not every New York premises liability accident can be attributed to a property owner's negligence, a number of injuries may be caused by avoidable and unsafe property conditions. The following are among the reasons a property owner can be held accountable for a premises liability accident:

  • Failure to post adequate warnings (e.g. "Slippery When Wet" signs)
  • Insufficient security personnel
  • Lack of safety lighting or other precautions
  • Uneven or slippery walking surfaces
  • Unsafe roadways
  • Falling objects
  • Inadequate supervision at swimming pools

After examining the common causes of premises liability accidents, it may appear that dangerous and unsafe property conditions can exist everywhere. While it may seem simple to determine whether an individual is responsible for injuries occurring on their property, establishing negligence under New York premises liability law can be a difficult task.
