Whether you were walking outside a commercial property and slipped on an iced-over sidewalk, or tripped down a flight of stairs in your apartment complex because of little or no lighting in the hall, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and expenses.


At Munawar & Hashmat, LLP, we are personal injury attorneys with a keen understanding of premises liability law. With years of experience, we know the best methods for holding negligent parties accountable while helping you secure the compensation you deserve.

Understanding Premises Liability Laws In New York City

Timing is a critical factor in premises liability cases. In most cases, statutes of limitations apply that limit the time you have to file a claim after an injury has occurred. To ensure you meet the required deadlines, the best thing for you to do is to speak with our team during a free initial consultation.


When you work with us, we will carry out investigations, review the circumstances of your case, work with accident reconstructionists and other professionals, and see that deadlines are met, all while building support for your claim.


Some common accidents and injuries we see include:

  • Elevator Accident
  • Defective Elevators
  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Parking Lot Fall
  • Side Walk Fall
  • Uneven Floor
  • Wet Floor
  • Electrocution
  • Lead Poisoning
  • Escalator Accidents
  • Burn
  • Unsafe Building
  • Unsafe Pool

As experienced and knowledgeable lawyers, we know the best methods and strategies for pursuing full and fair compensation. We will investigate all aspects of your case, such as determining the status of the injured person as an invitee, licensee or trespasser on the property. We will also review the contractual duties a landlord has to a renter, as well as other status and duty issues that may play into your case.
