NY State Law of Premises Liability

The New York State law of premises liability states that property owners have a responsibility to maintain safe premises. Property owners who fail to meet those responsibilities may be at risk for premises liability claims. Premises liability accidents are a common cause of injury according to statistics, ranging from soft tissue injuries and herniated discs to broken bones, brain and spinal cord injuries, and death.

Our Long Island law firm is trained to effectively and efficiently resolve your case. According to reports by the Department of Justice (DOJ), victims of personal injury in premises liability cases throughout the United States collect about 4 billion dollars in compensation each year. About 6% of these cases result in punitive damages awarded on top of actual damages.

Drunk Driving in New York

New York, like all states, is plagued by drunk driving accidents, causing needless pain, suffering, and sometimes death for innocent victims. In 2012, drunk driving deaths accounted for 29 % of all traffic deaths in New York – a 4.9 % increase from 2011. The CDC reported that U.S. adults got drunk and drove about 112 million times in 2010.
According to an article written by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration entitled, “Traffic Stop and You: Improving Communications between Citizens and Law Enforcement” published in March 2001, one in three people on average will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime.
Whether you were a driver, a passenger in another vehicle, a passenger in the car with the drunk driver, or a pedestrian involved in an accident with a drunk driver or driver under the influence, commonly referred to as DUI/DWI accident – you deserve to fully recover fair compensation for your injuries. Our lawyers at TonaLaw will protect your rights. We represent victims throughout New York who were innocently injured by negligent drunk drivers.

You Have a Right to Compensation

According to New York State law, victims have the right to file suit against drunk drivers who cause injury resulting from:

  • Multiple-car accidents caused by failure to use appropriate caution, failure to recognize or obey traffic signs or signals, speeding, or inability to properly control a vehicle.
  • Single-car accidents caused by drivers running off the road, losing control or failing to maintain safe distances or abide by traffic signs, signals, or markers.
  • Accidents involving pedestrians.

2% of all Traffic Accidents Happen on a Bicycle

Bicycle Accidents are a common Personal Injury case.

Bicycle transportation is one of the most common and cost-effective means of transportation in the United States and throughout areas of New York, especially New York City and parts of Long Island. In the United States, there are approximately 515,000 emergency room visits from bicycle accidents each year. In addition to causing devastating injuries, bicycle accidents can also be fatal when a cyclist is struck by a motor vehicle.Bicycle crash fatalities have been on the rise the past few years. With 800 total deaths in 2012, just over two people every day of that year in the U.S. lost their lives in a bicycle accident involving a motor vehicle. According to the CDC, adolescents between the ages of 15 and 24 and adults 45 and older have the highest mortality rate from bicycle accidents with automobiles. Bicycle accidents represent approximately 2% of the people killed and injured in traffic crashes in a given year.
