In New York City, property owners have a duty to clear snow and ice from their sidewalk and to keep their property in a safe condition as required by the New York City Administrative Code. Property owners often take steps to clear sidewalks, walkways, driveways, steps and parking lots. Taking measures to remove dangers within a reasonable time can prevent serious and debilitating, lifelong injuries.

A property owner may be liable for your injuries if the property owner was negligent or created or knew about a dangerous condition and failed to correct it. For example, a property owner may be liable:

•· if the property owner has improperly or poorly cleared

the sidewalk, driveway, step(s), parking lot or other pavement,

which caused you to slip and fall;

•· if icy conditions form in a depressed portion of the sidewalk

or other pavement, causing you to fall;

•· if snow or ice melts and refreezes into patches of ice causing

you to slip and fall;

•· if gutters and leaders are improperly directed to an area where

ice forms, resulting in a slip and fall.

The property owner may be a homeowner, commercial property owner, a private company or municipality.

It is important that you take photographs of the snowy and icy condition and contact an attorney experienced in such cases. Cohen & Cohen Law Group, P.C., is a law firm experienced in handling cases involving slips and falls on snow and ice.
