We will Seek Compensation for Your Damages
You have the right to seek different types of compensation following an injury on another party’s property. The amount and types of damages you can recover will depend on the severity of your injuries.
You could secure compensation for these losses:
Medical Bills not Covered By Your Insurance
The medical bills following a serious injury can be extensive. Whether you fell from a great height or were bitten by an animal, you could require both immediate and long-term medical care. A personal injury case could help you recover the cost of treatment now and in the future.
Lost Wages if You were Unable to Work
If you are forced to miss time away from work due to an injury, you could seek any lost income. You could also receive compensation for lost employee benefits and reduced future earning capacity.
Pain and Suffering Your Injury Caused
We understand that your injury-related damages go beyond your monetary losses. You could seek compensation for pain and suffering, which pays for your physical and emotional hardships. We will calculate this loss based on:
- Your daily pain levels
- Your time missed from work
- Your diagnosis and prognosis
- Testimony from consultants and those close to you
This is not a complete list. You could recover other losses based on your situation.

Examples of Situations That Constitute Premises Liability Cases
Some people see the term “premises liability” and immediately think of slips and falls. While a slip and fall is a type of premises liability case, it’s not the only thing that could cause injuries on another party’s property.
Other examples of premises liability incidents include:
Swimming Pool Incidents
Swimming pools are great for relaxation, but they also come with serious risks. Slips, near-fatal drownings, and cracked pavement could all cause serious impairments.
Dog bites and other animal attacks are also examples of premises liability cases. Depending on the circumstances, you could hold the owner accountable for the injuries caused by their dog.
Lack of Security That Prompted a Violent Crime Against You
Sometimes, you have the right to pursue a civil case when you are the victim of a violent crime. You could pursue a lawsuit against the property owner where the attack happened if they did not do enough to prevent it despite a duty to do so.

Our Law Firm Can Determine Your Case’s Viability in a Free Case Review
We offer all clients free case reviews. Here, we can discuss your situation with no obligation. If you can answer “yes” to any of the following questions, we could represent you:
- Were you injured by a hazard on another party’s property?
- Did the property owner know about a potential hazard?
- If the property owner didn’t know about a hazard, should they have known about it?
- Did you suffer serious injuries and related financial losses?
It does not matter whether you were injured on public or private property—you have options when holding another party accountable.
We will Seek to Prove Negligence in Your Case
The American Bar Association (ABA) requires us to prove the following in your case:
- The property owner had a duty of care toward you, meaning they had an obligation to warn you of or remove hazards on their property.
- The property owner failed to meet their duty of care by allowing a danger to exist on their premises.
- You suffered harm.
- You incurred losses.
Using evidence, we can prove all of these statements.
You Must File Your Case Within the State-Mandated Deadline
The statute of limitations is the formal deadline that applies to every premises liability lawsuit in Nassau County. If you wait until after this deadline expires to file your lawsuit, the court is likely to dismiss your case with prejudice.
The statute of limitations is governed by CPLR § 214. You generally have three years from the date of your injury to file your lawsuit. If you were hurt on government-owned property, you typically have only 90 days to file, per GMU § 50-E.
There are a handful of exceptions that could extend these deadlines, but you should never assume they apply to your case. Our premises liability lawyers serving Nassau County can review your situation and advise you on how long you have to file.
