Premises Liability

New York Premises Liability Lawyer

The attorneys at the firm of Jaroslawicz & Jaros have been successfully representing persons and their families that have suffered injuries as a result of being injured on Premises for over forty (40) years.

A property owner or a person in possession of property has a legal responsibility to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition. The law provides that property owners must keep their premises reasonably safe for people who are on the property and owners may be held responsible if they were aware of a hazard or if they should have been aware of it.

People may suffer injuries in many ways, such as on a defective flight of stairs, a dangerous patch of ice or snow, collapsing ceilings, inadequate security, or other building defects or dangerous conditions. So if you were injured as a result of a dangerous condition on premises then you may be entitled to receive compensation. The firm of Jaroslawicz & Jaros has extensive experience in this area and a record of success in handling premises liability cases.

Jaroslawicz & Jaros was successful in pursuing a claim on behalf of a worker who was injured when she was assaulted by an intruder while in her place of employment. Tully v. Sylvan Lawrence Co., 97 Civ. 5762 (JSM), United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, 1999 U.S. Dist. 1207. The Court found that Summary Judgment for the security company was not appropriate where a jury could find that a worker’s injuries were caused by an intruder who had gained access to her place of work through an entrance negligently maintained by the security company.

In a slip and fall on ice Jaroslawicz & Jaros were successful in the case of Hecht v. City of New York, 02 Civ. 4029 (JGK) (JCF) , United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. In a negligence claim for falling on ice the Court found it survived summary judgment because the evidence established that the building superintendent attached a hose to a water spigot, left the water in the on position, and did not advise the resident that it was necessary to turn the water off to prevent the hose from icing and bursting.
