Snow & Ice Accident Attorney

Experienced Lawyers For Snow & Ice Accidents and Injuries

The law firm of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff LLP takes on insurance companies and fights for injured people. After a serious injury, you might like to think that insurance companies are looking out for your best interests. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Insurance companies will try to minimize what they pay to you in damages. If you have a lawyer on your side, you will increase your odds of recovering full compensation.

Winters in New York City are long and not always pleasant. The weather can create a number of inconveniences. For example, walking on icy or snow-packed sidewalks can be downright treacherous. When property owners fail to keep their sidewalks free of snow and ice, pedestrians are at risk of slipping and falling. These falls can cause major injuries, such as back injuries, head injuries and injuries to the arms or legs. These injuries can complicate a number of areas of your life. Your injuries may require extensive rehabilitation, and they may prevent you from working or enjoying your life.

Property owners have a number of obligations under New York City law to remove snow and ice within a reasonable time frame. If snow stops falling between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., property owners must clear sidewalks within four hours. If the snow stops between 5 p.m. and 7 a.m., property owners are required to remove the snow before 11 a.m. In certain cases, such as when the sidewalk is next to a one-, two- or three-family dwelling and the owner occupies the building, the City is liable for your damages. The laws in this field are very intricate. If you do not work with an experienced premises injury lawyer, you may miss out on certain avenues of recovery.

Call our snow and ice injury attorneys in New York City at 1 (212) 210-1637 or e-mail us to discuss your situation. We offer a free, confidential consultation and do not charge attorneys’ fees unless we are successful in your case.

Experienced NYC Lawyers For Sidewalk Accidents & Injuries

At Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP, we have extensive experience handling sidewalk accident cases for clients throughout New York City and surrounding areas. Our attorneys are prepared to help you obtain the justice and compensation you deserve for your New York City sidewalk injury.

Sidewalk Accident Injuries

Sidewalks can be dangerous for a number of reasons. When property owners fail to remove hazards such as ice and snow, they can become dangerously slippery, leading to slip-and-fall accidents. When potholes, cracks, uneven surfaces, and other hazards exist, they can lead to trip-and-fall accidents. In New York City, many sidewalks contain cellar doors leading to storage rooms beneath stores. If these doors are not properly positioned or maintained, they can also present a hazard to pedestrians.

With thousands of miles in sidewalks, New York is the site of numerous sidewalk accidents every year. Victims of sidewalk accidents can suffer traumatic head injuries, broken bones, back injuries, and even life-threatening injuries. In most cases, sidewalk accident victims can pursue compensation from the party responsible for the upkeep of the sidewalk.

Contact us today online or by telephone at (212) 210-1637. to arrange a consultation with an experienced New York City sidewalk accident lawyer.

New York City Sidewalk Injury Liability

Recent changes in New York law have shifted liability for sidewalk accidents from the government to property owners. If an accident takes place on a sidewalk adjacent to a store, apartment building, office tower or other property, the owner of that property can be held liable for damages.

Our attorneys are well versed in New York premises liability law and familiar with the statutes governing sidewalk accident liability. We are prepared to help you pursue maximum compensation for the losses you have incurred due to a sidewalk injury.
