Who is Responsible?
Determining liability in these sidewalk slip and fall cases is not always easy. In some cases, the liable party is a private or commercial property owner that failed to maintain conditions over time (or during extreme weather). In other cases, where an injury occurs in public space, it may be the City of New York itself that is responsible due to its lack of care in maintaining a safe environment for residents.
Common places where these accidents occur include:
- Uneven pavement including broken sidewalks
- Snow and ice buildup
- Tree roots leading to tripping hazards
- Debris, holes, and cracks on the sidewalk
- Improper installation of sidewalk
