When you are injured on dangerous New York business premises
New York law imposes upon businesses an obligation to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business premises. If a business fails to exercise the legally-required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At The Law Offices Of Wayne D. Kurzner, our attorneys employ a practical, professional approach to ensure that our clients obtain full and fair compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
Legal duty of care
In order for a business to be found responsible for your accident, evidence must be shown to prove that a dangerous condition on the business premises caused your injury and that at least one of the following is true:
- The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person
Our attorneys consult with knowledgeable and respected experts while preparing your case. With the assistance of physicians, chiropractors and forensics engineers, our attorneys can negotiate the best possible settlements. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony so the jurors can understand cause of the accident and the extent of your injuries.
Timely filing of your claim
By immediately consulting an attorney, you can help ensure the collection of valuable evidence. The lawyers at The Law Offices Of Wayne D. Kurzner thoroughly investigate every case and often visit the premises where the accident occurred to gather crucial evidence, photograph the accident scene and interview witnesses. With significant delay, you could forfeit your right to file a claim by missing the deadline set by New York law.
