How to Strengthen Your Premise Liability Claim

When you walk on someone else’s property, you trust the owner to warn you about any potential hazards and keep your safety in mind. If you sustain injuries due to a property owner’s negligence, you have the right to pursue financial compensation for your losses. With the support of our knowledgeable lawyers at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP you can focus on recovery while we handle every aspect of your claim.

We have proudly provided top-notch legal services to New York premises liability victims for years, so we have the skills and resources to take on any claim. We do everything we can to build a strong claim and advocate for you. This includes helping you gather essential evidence to prove your injuries resulted from another party’s negligence. 

5 Ways to Strengthen Your New York Premises Liability Claim

As the plaintiff in your case, you carry the burden of proof. This means you are responsible for presenting evidence that proves the negligent party owed you a duty of care, they neglected this duty, and that negligence caused your injuries and damages. To help prove these points and achieve the compensation you deserve, you can take the following steps:

Link the Cause to Your Injuries

When building your claim, we can help you gather evidence that proves the property owner’s negligence caused your injuries. This may include medical records, testimony from a medical professional, and video footage of the incident. Presenting this proof significantly benefits your claim and your chance of a fair settlement.

Prove the Owner’s Knowledge

If the owner knew about the dangerous conditions that caused your injuries and failed to warn you, we may help you hold them accountable by presenting the following evidence:

  • Testimony from someone who knows how long the hazard existed
  • Security camera footage
  • Accident reports

You can also take photos and videos of the scene after the accident to demonstrate the property owner’s negligence.

Document Your Injuries

After the accident, you can strengthen your case by journaling your experience. Writing about the recovery process, your daily appointments, and how you feel physically and mentally can help calculate non-economic damages like pain and suffering.

Track Medical Expenses

During recovery, keeping track of your medical bills and other expenses is essential for your claim. These documents help us determine your case’s worth and show what damages the liable party’s negligence caused. Our professional team may help you obtain and track the following costs:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Prescribed medication 
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy 
  • Assistive medical devices
  • Modifications to your home or vehicle

With this documentation, we negotiate with insurance companies for a fair settlement and ensure you get full compensation for your damages.
