Premises Liability Defense Attorneys Serving New York City and the Surrounding Areas


A Competent, Professional, and Experienced Law Firm Ready to Defend Your Company’s Interests

Commercial premises are frequent targets of personal injury lawsuits brought by individuals who have been injured on the premises. While some of these claims may be legitimate, others may be unfounded or out of proportion to the harm caused.

Jeffrey Samel & Partners represents commercial property owners, managers, maintenance companies, security companies, and retail establishments in personal injury issues occurring on commercial premises of all types, including:

  • Office buildings
  • Retail stores
  • Shopping malls
  • Manufacturing plants
  • Hotels

Our premises liability defense lawyers serve clients based anywhere in the country who have cases in New York City, Westchester County and Long Island. They are skilled at building strong defenses to both routine and unique legal claims based on facts and legal precedent and defend against the false perception that property owners can and should compensate a plaintiff, regardless of fault. We have a long track record of successes defending our clients in this area.

Attorneys Defending Against Frivolous Lawsuits for Commercial Property Owners in Westchester County and Long Island

Property owners have to be aware of a potentially harmful condition and have sufficient time to rectify it or secure it before they can be considered liable for harm done to an individual. Many personal injury lawsuits are brought against owners of commercial premises for situations they were never aware of, or when the injury occurred before the property owner had time to rectify the problem.

Our attorneys resolve our clients’ premises liability problems as quickly and efficiently as possible. We use alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as mediation or direct negotiation whenever possible to bring our clients’ cases to a close in a cost-effective manner. If this is not an option, our accomplished trial lawyers will stand between our clients and plaintiffs who believe our clients should pay simply because they have “deep pockets.”

Our firm has defended against premises liability lawsuits of all types, including:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Snow and ice
  • Employee assaults
  • Trash or liquid debris
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Uneven walkways or other surfaces
  • Malfunctioning elevators or escalators
  • Violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act
