Premises Liability Attorneys
New York City Slip and Fall Accident LawyersNew York slip and fall law can seem complex and confusing for the inexperienced. There are many legal requirements that must be met in order to hold a party responsible for a slip and fall accident.
For example, it is the injured party’s burden to establish that the property owner, or its agent, either created the dangerous condition, or had actual or constructive notice of of the hazardous condition. This means that unless the injured person can prove that the property owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition with a reasonable opportunity to remedy it, the court may dismiss the injured person’s claim.
A slip and fall accident may occur due to any number of factors. Some of these include the following:
- Foreign substance
- Snow and ice
- Failure to place mats
- Failure to place warning signs
Slip and fall accidents can produce serious injuries including fractures, dislocations, or torn ligaments.When a slip and fall accident occurs upon a sidewalk within the City of New York due to a snow or ice condition, the New York City Administrative Code exempts one-, two-, and three-family owner-occupied premises from liability for failing to keep the sidewalks abutting their premises free from snow and ice. In these cases, the City of New York remains responsible to remove snow and ice from such sidewalks. In all other cases, the property owner and/or their managing agent have the duty to keep abutting sidewalks in a reasonably safe condition. When the City of New York is the responsible party, a Notice of Claim must be timely filed with the Comptroller’s Office.
