Under New York Law, property owners must take adequate care to ensure that their premises are safe. If you slipped in a poorly salted parking lot, tripped on unevenly constructed stairs, or were bit by someone else’s pet, you may have a premises liability claim.

At Collins & Collins Attorneys, we handle all types of premises liability cases ranging from defective sidewalks, crosswalks, streets, pathways and stairways to improperly and negligently maintained private residences, commercial buildings, industrial buildings, parking lots and parks.

There are many potential ways in which someone can be injured on an unsafe property. We have seen many different situations where an unsafe condition led to a significant injury.

Some examples are:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Stair collapses
  • Elevator injuries
  • Sidewalk accidents
  • Ceiling collapses
  • Swimming pool drownings
  • Negligent security
  • Boiler explosions
  • Hot water burns
  • Dog bites

In every case, our mission is to recover maximum compensation for your injuries. We will work hard to get you the money you need to cover your medical bills, time off work, pain and suffering, and damages.

Please be aware that your claim may be subject to statutory time restraints that require immediate attention. In addition, it is important to act promptly to preserve any evidence at the scene. It is not beyond some property owners to try to cover up the cause of the accident to protect themselves from liability. Moreover, if your accident involves a potential municipal entity (State, County, Town, Village, School District, etc…), you need to act quickly in getting an attorney because you may have as little as 90 days from the accident to file the claim.

Contact us immediately if you or a loved one has been injured as a result of any type of dangerous property condition. Our attorneys are always available for a free consultation with absolutely no obligations. Call us today at 716-885-9700. Remember, we only get paid if you get paid!
