The accumulation of snow and ice on steps and sidewalks is a frequent problem for pedestrians in New York City. When walkways are not properly cleared on a timely basis, they become accidents waiting to happen.

Protecting The Public From Dangerous Property Conditions
Property owners in New York have a responsibility to maintain their property so that guests, customers and the general public are not injured by dangerous conditions such as slippery ice and snow. This area of law is known as premises liability. Damages in premises liability cases are usually covered by homeowners insurance or general business liability insurance.
Unfortunately, time is not on the side of an injured person. The longer you wait to collect and preserve evidence of the icy and snowy conditions that caused your injury, the more difficult it will be to prove property owner negligence. The longer you go without proper medical care, the more difficult it will be to prove your injury was caused by the slip-and-fall accident.
To protect your rights, contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an accident. Here is an example of the results our premises liability law firm has obtained for our clients:
