Who Is Responsible If I Slip And Fall On A Sidewalk?

Under New York City law, property owners ― including owners of businesses, apartment buildings and multifamily dwellings ― are expressly required to keep their sidewalks "in a reasonably safe condition." This means they have a duty to maintain their sidewalks and keep them reasonably free from hazardous conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • Snow and ice
  • Uneven or raised sidewalk slabs
  • Broken pavement
  • Loose bricks

When a property owner fails to repair and/or maintain his or her sidewalk, and you are injured in a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident as a result, you may be able to seek damages for your injury by filing a premises liability claim.

If you have suffered a sidewalk-related injury, you need to speak to an experienced lawyer as soon as possible, especially since liability can vary significantly depending on the situation. A knowledgeable attorney can investigate the circumstances of your accident and help determine which parties are responsible for your injuries.
