Property ownership in Staten Island comes with responsibilities. Among these duties is the obligation to keep the premises safe for people present or visiting the premises. This applies to every person, regardless of the type of property that is owned or a visitor’s reason for entering the property.
However, just because an injury occurs on another party’s property does not automatically mean that you are entitled to compensation for your losses. You still must be able to connect your losses to the accident and prove that another party’s failure to keep the property safe was a cause of your damages. Following an injury on another party’s property, many people become confused or frustrated with the claims process.
A Staten Island premises liability lawyer may be able to help you with your insurance claim and lawsuit. The legal team at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates has worked with people like you since 1988 to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions or failure to act. Ideally, we can obtain a settlement to fairly compensate you for your injuries and damages without the need to go to trial. However, if we need to proceed to trial , we are prepared to fight to obtain a jury award in your favor and secure a full, just and fair financial recovery on your behalf.

Landowners Must Protect Visitors on Their Property
The state of New York requires all property owners to protect people who enter their properties. This applies equally to private homeowners, parties who open commercial property to the public, and even government entities. In general, these owners must take reasonable steps to protect guests from suffering injuries due to defective conditions on the property. This can include inspecting an area for hazards, performing routine maintenance, and providing proper security measures.
This is especially important considering how common premises liability injuries are. In an article published in the Graziadio Business Review, around 1,000 people experience slip and fall accidents every day in Wal-Mart stores alone. Of course, businesses are not the only possible liable parties in a premises liability case.
Apartment building owners also have a responsibility to keep their tenants safe from accidents and criminal activity. Even private homeowners must take reasonable steps to protect invited guests from accidents due to dangerous conditions on the property.
A Staten Island premises liability lawyer can explain how premises liability laws apply to your case. We can also investigate the cause of your injuries to hold the negligent parties accountable for your losses. You can call Dansker & Aspromonte Associates today to learn more.
Understanding Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability accidents can be serious. A slip and fall accident can break a person’s bones, damage their joints, damage their spinal cord, or result in a brain injury and concussion. These injuries may necessitate months or years of rehabilitation and result in permanent damage.
Examples of Premises Liability Accidents
Of course, slips and falls are not the only causes of premises liability injuries. Injuries may also result from a failure to maintain a property. For instance, if a homeowner fails to repair damaged steps, and someone is harmed as a result, the owner could be held financially accountable for their negligence. Property owners may also be liable if their vicious dog bites a guest or an act of criminal violence happens on their premises due to the failure to keep the premises secure.
Possible Compensable Losses
A property owner may be financially responsible for your injuries and injury-related expenses. This includes payment for your pain and suffering, emotional trauma, medical bills and reduced quality of life. Many people can also demand compensation when an injury leaves them temporarily unable to work or is so severe that they are never able to return to work.
A Staten Island premises liability lawyer can evaluate how another party’s failure to keep their property safe caused your accident and determine the compensation to which you may be entitled. You can get in touch with Dansker & Aspromonte Associates today by dialing (212) 732-2929.
