Who Is Responsible for Ice and Snow Removal?
In New York City, it is up to the building owners to remove ice and snow on sidewalks next to their property. Building owners have to take certain precautions to ensure that the sidewalks are safe for pedestrians. These precautions include:
- Chipping away ice
- Shoveling snow
- Laying down salt and gravel when required
If you have been injured due to an ice or snow fall sidewalk accident, our attorneys will review the circumstances of your fall and determine who the responsible party is. We work closely with a team of top medical specialists to determine what impact the accident has on your life. This systematic approach helps us fight for fair and maximum compensation for your suffering.
If we find that a business has neglected to clear ice or shovel away snow from busy sidewalks in the city, it goes to say that a fall was bound to occur. The unnatural build-up of ice and other dangerous conditions on sidewalks during the colder months are common causes of slip and fall accidents. Clearing away snow right after a storm is just part of eliminating dangers.
