Were You Injured While Visiting New York City?
As one of the most well-known and attractive of all states in the U.S., New York is a highly visited area, especially the metropolitan area. In 2009 alone, more than 45 million people were reported as visiting the city from out of town, and more than 8 million of these tourists were actually international visitors traveling abroad.
The population of the city is already large, but add to that number millions more and you almost have a recipe for disaster. Large numbers of people gathered in one area form one of the most congested cities in the world. This creates a high potential for accidents and injuries, and there are many tourists who could attest to this fact.
There really is no difference between a tourist being injured in New York in comparison to a New Yorker being injured in New York, because both would likely fall under the category of premises liability. There may, however, be an increased risk of injury for tourists simply because the city is foreign to them.
Take, for example, potholes, buildings under construction and aggressive cab drivers. All of these are nothing more than happenstance for the millions living in New York City, but for the unsuspecting tourist, these are hazardous conditions that could easily lead to accident and injury. Therefore, tourists are advised to take great heed when perusing the city’s streets and storefronts.
