    All New York property owners are responsible for ensuring that their property is reasonably safe from hazardous conditions for guests, patrons, and visitors. How can you prove that the property owner is negligent when a property owner is careless and fails to maintain the safe conditions of their property? Is premises liability the same as negligence?

    What Is Premises Liability?

    Following an accident on someone else’s property, premises liability, and negligence are terms you often hear. However, understanding the legal definition of these words can be challenging. Premises liability and legal negligence are legal concepts.
