Business or Personal Property– Chesney, Nicholas & Brower LLP Is A Premises Liability Defense Law Firm In Metropolitan New York


Owning property, whether for business or for personal purposes, involves responsibility. This responsibility is compounded when the property is a corporate or business venture, like an apartment building or a grocery store. The greater the traffic in an area, the greater the risk and the more reason for you to rely on a solid, established legal firm to handle any actions that may arise.

When involved in a Premises Liability Defense case, the possessor of land or property is claimed responsible for injuries suffered by a guest or guests who are present on their premises. A good example of this is a business owner who becomes liable for a slip and fall injury of a customer that occurred while shopping at their store. The amount of responsibility varies dependent on whether the plaintiff is an invitee, a licensee or even a trespasser, distinctions that can sometimes make a great difference in the case outcome. We are experienced enough to know the intricacies that can give you the advantage.
