All of the news channels are predicting a large snow storm for NYC and the surrounding areas. Please stay warm and safe during the upcoming storm, and avoid if possible going outside until there has been a reasonable chance for the sidewalks, stairs and streets to have been cleaned.
During the storm, please be advised that our phones, as always, will be answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our investigators are prepared for the storm, and will be available to sign up any new cases.
If you know of someone involved in a slip and fall accident on snow or ice, tell them to take photographs of the condition immediately. Photographs taken with a cell phone can be developed and used as evidence. Property owners are required to maintain their sidewalks, and stair cases in a reasonably safe condition and must shovel them within a reasonable time after the snowfall stops. Failure to reasonably clear snow and ice conditions from stairs or the sidewalk could subject the property owner to damages to a person injured in a slip and fall accident.
Wishing everyone the best health, happiness and prosperity for the upcoming year.
Very truly yours,
