4 Questions to Ask a Premises Liability Lawyer, Bronx, New York

If you got hurt on another person’s property, you might be eligible to file a premises liability suit. A qualified attorney can help you file a claim promptly and improve your chances of receiving fair compensation. Here are some common questions litigants have about this type of personal injury case.

Premises Liability FAQ

1. Can I Sue If the Property Wasn’t Safely Maintained?

Property owners are legally obligated to ensure their premises are safe. If they were aware of a dangerous condition or should have known about it, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries.

2. Am I Entitled to Compensation If I Was Trespassing?

In many cases, property owners aren’t responsible when trespassers injure themselves on the premises. However, if an owner regularly sees unauthorized people on the property, they must provide proper warning of potential hazards.

3. How Much Will I Receive for My Claim?

No two premises liability cases are the same. The amount of money you receive depends on factors such as the severity of the injury, medical expenses, and wages lost. Your premises liability lawyer may be able to give a ballpark estimate of how much you can expect from your settlement.

4. How Much Time Do I Have to File a Claim?

The statute of limitations to file a premises liability claim varies by state; in New York, it is three years. Once that deadline passes, you won’t have the opportunity to pursue compensation.
