Legal help after a premises liability injury
Property owners or property managers — and in some cases, municipalities — should identify safety hazards through routine maintenance and inspection.
Not every accident on private property is an actionable claim. However, if the owner created, ignored or failed to notice a dangerous condition, that owner may be accountable for injuries and losses.
In New York City, a premises liability claim may apply to:
- Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents from slippery surfaces or tripping hazards
- Snow and Ice Accumulations on walkways
- Elevator and Escalator Accidents
- Lead Paint Poisoning
- Assaults related to inadequate security
- Swimming pool accidents
- Fires or explosions
- Dog Bites and animal attacks
Failure to correct or failure to warn
We investigate quickly to document the unsafe condition through photographs and witness affidavits. We also look into prior lawsuits and complaints, building code or health code violations, maintenance logs, and other evidence.
Our job is to prove that the owner knew or should have known of the hazard and had a reasonable time to address the defect or properly warn patrons and visitors.
Once we establish liability, we work closely with clients and medical providers to ensure full compensation for past and future medical care, lost wages, permanent disability or disfigurement, and appropriate damages for pain and suffering.

While most cases eventually settle out of court, insurance companies will not offer fair compensation without the credible threat of bigger damages at trial. Our premises liability attorneys are prepared to take property owners to court and lay out a compelling case for a jury if necessary.
Raphaelson & Levine has a reputation in court as being aggressive, well prepared, and willing to try any case necessary to get the most compensation that a specific case will warrant.
We routinely follow the appellate division decisions regarding the greatest value that any injury will entitle under the law and we hold the line until that amount is paid. There is no cost to have your claim evaluated and there are no attorney fees unless we win.
