Queens County Lawyer Guides You Through Your Premises Liability Case

Applying more than 30 years of experience to get you compensation for your injuries

When a property owner fails to properly maintain their premises, serious accidents can occur. These accidents can often be prevented. It is the responsibility of a property owner to ensure the safety of their patrons. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury while on a commercial property, you may be able to file a premises liability claim. You deserve to be compensated for your medical bills and loss of income.

The law firm of Richard M. Gutierrez is dedicated to fighting for the rights of injury victims in New York. We explain the legal process every step of the way.

Examples of dangerous premises

Unmaintained and unsafe property can lead to painful injuries. We represent clients who have been hurt due to dangerous conditions such as:

  • Defective electrical wiring
  • Building code violations
  • Slippery or icy sidewalks
  • Wet floors
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Potholes
  • Faulty handrails
  • Defective stairways
  • Lack of security
  • Elevator or escalator failures
  • Fires
  • Inadequate lighting

If you have been injured on commercial property, you may be eligible for compensation. We do everything possible to help you obtain a positive outcome after your slip and fall accident.

Types of cases we handle

We primarily represent clients in commercial property cases. When you are injured due to the negligence of a property owner, property manager or business owner, you may have a premises liability claim. Some of the types of property where these accidents can occur include:

  • Restaurants
  • Bars
  • Parking lots
  • Grocery stores
  • Hotels
  • Shopping centers
  • Sports centers
  • Hospitals

The people who manage commercial properties have a legal responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for customers. In a premises liability case, you must prove that your injury was caused by the dangerous conditions of the establishment. These cases can be complex, and it is important that you are represented by a knowledgeable personal injury attorney who has the resources and skills necessary to determine who is at fault for your accident.
