Sometimes, injured parties can contact a New York residential premises liability attorney to get the financial compensation and justice they deserve. If the worst happens and someone loses their life due to a hazardous condition on someone else’s property, their family members are eligible to file a wrongful death claim to obtain financial compensation for funeral costs, pain and suffering, and more.
When you or someone you love is injured while on someone else’s property, the owner or owners are legally liable for any injuries you sustain if the negligence directly harms you.
