As a New York business owner, you have to keep your eyes open for possible liability issues. Keeping your business safe for employees and customers is important to avoid legal issues. At Bendall & Mednick, we see many cases where an oversight by a business owner has led to customer injuries. In order to avoid such situations, you need to be aware of the aspects of premises liability.
Forbes explains that it does not matter who gets injured. Someone who is not authorized to be on your property may even have some protection under the law for any injuries sustained while on your property. Even if you rent your establishment, you are still going to be held liable for almost any injury that occurs on your property. It is your duty to make sure that you keep your property in good condition and provide safe areas for employees, customers and anyone else.
