As we all know, this past winter in New York City ranked as one of the severest on record. People should know their rights when they fall due to wintry conditions. In many instances injuries sustained in a fall on snow or an icy sidewalk could have been avoided if the property owner where the accident occurred had properly cleaned the sidewalks in front of his or her store, building or home.
When a property owner is required to clean the sidewalks due to snow and ice, all efforts must be done reasonably. Leaving patches of bumpy areas of snow and ice on a path may cause fall hazards to pedestrians. People that slip and fall on snow and ice may be entitled to commence a law suit for personal injuries, pain, suffering and medical expenses under certain circumstances.
