Did You Fall On An Icy Sidewalk?

“What a mess.”

This is a common reaction for New Yorkers walking outside in the fall, winter and early spring. Roads, sidewalks and parking lots typically become hazardous due to a healthy layer of ice and/or snow. Walking from place to place or even simply exiting a store can become a dangerous activity. If you fell and injured yourself on an ice- or snow-covered sidewalk, we encourage you to call our firm to learn more about your legal options.

At COHEN & COHEN PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS, P.C., our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience representing injured clients in Queens and communities throughout New York. We understand what it takes to win a case — whether through negotiation or courtroom litigation. In fact, we prepare for every case as if it would be resolved in court, and our attention to detail serves us well.


Depending on where you were and what establishment you were exiting, the responsibility of cleaning the sidewalk can fall on different parties. That is for us to worry about, however, not you. If you fell and suffered an injury such as a broken bone, torn ligament, ruptured tendons or other soft-tissue injuries, it is wise to seek the counsel of a skilled attorney. Premises liability (or slip-and-fall injuries) can become complex due to numerous factors. Our diverse experience and depth of legal knowledge will be a direct benefit to you.

Once you meet with us, we can begin investigating your accident. Have there been other accidents in the same area? Is there a security camera? Were there witnesses to your fall? We will thoroughly examine all aspects of your situation to develop a strong, effective case.

In all personal injury cases, we provide a free, no-obligation case evaluation. Call or email our firm to discuss your accident in greater detail.
