Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable With Our Strong Premises Liability Advocacy

Property owners can be held responsible for injuries caused by uneven or cracked sidewalks, liquids left on floor surfaces, unlit walkways or lack of handrails on stairwells and many other dangerous conditions on their property. If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may have the right to file a premises liability claim for compensation.

Did The Owner Know About The Unsafe Condition?

In New York, a successful premises liability claim requires proof that the property owner or manager knew about the unsafe condition, but failed to make the property safe or to properly warn of the property hazards that caused your injury.

At Chopra & Nocerino, LLP, our firm will work with professional investigators to secure documentation to prove that the property owner knew about the unsafe condition that caused your injury. Our team of experienced lawyers can help you file a claim for:

  • A slip-and-fall accident
  • A trip-and-fall accident
  • A sidewalk or street accident
  • A stairway or stairwell accident
  • An elevator accident
  • A dog bite

Our trial lawyers have years of experience with the complex nuances of premises liability claims. We know what type of proof is necessary to seek the maximum compensation you deserve for your injuries. While we can often negotiate a settlement, we will take the case to trial when necessary.

We provide clear legal options for our clients so they can make informed decisions about settling or taking their case to trial. We fight for the best possible outcome for each of our clients, whether against an individual owner, a corporation or the city of New York.

Do You Have A Dog Bite Injury?

New York is home to thousands of dogs, and severe dog bite injuries are on the rise. Pet owners are responsible for the injuries their dogs cause. If you have been attacked by a dog, it is important to get the identification of the dog and its owner quickly. Photograph the injuries and seek medical attention. Talk to witnesses if possible and get their contact information as well.
